Photography and Ecosystem in Miami. The transformation of the coast between natural and built landscapes

The photographer Anastasia Samoylova provides evidence of climate change through her work. The project, which began in Miami in 2016, generated a process of analysis through which the artist understood the dissonance between the real estate market and the invasion of the ocean

FloodZone is a photographic project that reflects and responds to the problem of rising sea levels. The project, started in Miami in 2016, it starts with the artist's move to the area, his first experience in a tropical environment. I soon began to understand how the city's seductive tropical palette and quality of light hid the growing dissonance between its booming real estate market and the invasion of the ocean on its shoreline

Ocean views are appreciated in the real estate world, putting buildings in second place to high flood risk areas. Living in Miami is bittersweet: it looks like paradise, but the only safe roots are mangrove trees

FloodZone is a deep-rooted project that starts from the study of the differences between natural and built landscapes, and the role that photographs play in the construction of collective memories and imagined geographies. Focusing first on South America and increasingly on the East Coast, with the ultimate goal of documenting hundreds of other high tidal risk communities in the United States and abroad, the project goes beyond the types of images produced in the aftermath of hurricanes and massive flooding

By mixing modes of representation ranging from photographs to metaphorical, allegorical and constructed images, FloodZone aims to reveal the precarious psychological state of life that oscillates between paradise and catastrophe
