Book Floridas: Conversation Between Anastasia Samoylova, David Kampany, and J. Sybylla Smith

A visual dialog between images made by two distinctly observant and kindred photographers exploring the beguiling state(s) of Florida.

A palpable synergy permeates David Campany’s animated sequence of over 140 images and paintings in Anastasia Samoylova, Walker Evans Floridas. A playful interaction that recontextualizes Evans’ archive, also illuminates photography’s unique ability to capture paradox, metaphor and oxymoron. Both Samoylova and Evans investigate deeper truths and the mixed feelings generated at the intersection of myth, reality and the wild possibilities in between.
