Photography has played an important role in the construction of the myth and reality of the Everglades. Imaging Eden presents an overview of the medium’s historic complicity as silent witness, pre-meditated booster, and passionate advocate of this unique environment, and also showcases commissioned work by five international contemporary artists whose practices are photo-based, including Simon Norfolk (Nigeria), Jungjin Lee (Korea), Bert Tuenissen (the Netherlands) and Jim Goldberg – in collaboration with Jordan Stein (USA). Each artist was asked to respond to and expand beyond the physical, ideological, and aesthetic boundaries of the Everglades in their own, unique way. The exhibition will provide fertile ground for future conversations about one of the most unique, contested, and vital landscapes on the planet.
