Everglades Field Guide

From Reality To Memory

Everglades Field Guide From Reality to Memory, explores the landscape in creative ways which can redefine our perception of the wilderness. The book pairs journal entries with photographs and artworks that span a decade of observation. The images convey both real and imagined scenes—visual narratives that emphasize a sense of place and memory while referencing the cultural history of an imperiled ecosystem.

Presented in a cardboard box, the book consists of 142 color pages of visual art projects including paintings, photographs, journal entries and archival images from the South Florida Collections Management Center and photographs taken at Archbold Biological Station.    The strategic goal is to inspire the public to reconsider the environment while also illuminating the region’s collective heritage through art, history, science, and culture.
