Artist Talk: Storm Season by Daniel Kariko
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery

Kariko's pinhole photographs were taken in Louisiana wetlands, in the aftermath of recent hurricanes. The Polaroid process was used in order to simplify the creation of the image, and more so, to truly develop the image at the location, giving the project a certain finality.

The barrier islands of Southeast Louisiana represent the “First Line of Defense” against hurricanes. Our, often adversarial relationship with the world outside ultimately reveals our inability to adapt to the natural process. We stop the flooding of rivers by building levees, yet that destroys the wetlands that protect us from storm surges. These photographs set out to illustrate the results of such failed relations.
