    February 22, 2024  6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
    Midtown Reader, 1123 Thomasville Rd, Tallahassee, FL 32303, USA

    Don’t miss out on Benjamin Dimmitt in conversation with Susan Cerulean for his latest release, An Unflinching Look: Elegy for Wetlands!

    An Unflinching Look is an examination of a unique North American ecosystem in decline, investigated through eighty-five duotone photographs, scientific analysis, and critical interpretation. The project’s focus is the area of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge on Florida’s Gulf Coast and the history and fate of its wetlands.

    Dimmitt began photographing in the salt-damaged sawgrass savannas and spring creeks there as a way of examining and reckoning with the ecosystem loss and of understanding what was becoming of his native Florida. He narrowed his focus to a small, remote area that he knows well and loves. Dimmitt’s intention in bearing witness to this loss has been to portray the ruined landscape with respect and beauty. To document the progress of the saltwater intrusion, Dimmitt has rephotographed landscapes that he first photographed more than forty years ago. His photographs reveal the impact of several factors that are causing the loss of an entire ecosystem: rising sea levels caused by global warming, excessive pumping from the underground aquifer, and the contamination of limited natural resources.

  • Remembering Rosalynn Carter
    Earlier this week I found myself engaged in a pointless social media thread on the correct pronunciation of the late Rosalynn Carter’s first name, after which I realized that everyone commenting with great authority would only ever have called her “Mrs. Carter” if we’d had the chance. The world is grieving the death of this…
