PRINTMAKING

 

Evicted

evicted documents the destroyed homes and left-behind lives of low-income families once living in a trailer park community on mlk street in st. petersburg, fl. partially demo-ed, but nowhere to vacate to, residents abandon their personal possessions and are now homeless. an oversized curb-sign visualizes the upcoming construction of a new storage facility—in other words, the homes of paupers are razed to make room for the excess stuff from wealthier homes. the images were photographed with a zeiss ikon ikoflex on ilford delta 100. vandyke prints on stonehenge add an off-kilter sense of nostalgia.
