Abandoned Vehicles of the Everglades. Opening Exhibition by Matt Stock
Abandoned Vehicles of the Everglades explores the interaction between man and nature as seen through night-time environmental portraits of vehicles long abandoned in the Everglades ecosystem. Each image was captured at night utilizing the highly specialized technique of light painting combined with long exposures and seasonally specific images without adding anything to or taking away from the scene. Everything you will see in the following images was actually there on location: the super moon, the milky way, and of course the automobiles. Over the decades these man-made objects have become a part of the cycle of life as flora and fauna grow around and literally through them.
These images show a hidden side of the Everglades and speak concurrently to mankind attempts to conquer the Everglades. This project is the story of those vehicles.
