2020 Foretold

Recent landscape photos forecast and document the surprising year of 2020 in America.

Photographed spontaneously in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Navarre Beach, Florida, Dauphin Island, Alabama and in Metairie and Slidell, Louisiana, these color images capture current times.

In 2018 I was struck by the “New Kind of Landscape” image I took in Los Angeles and found the odd mask and nightclub facade images on and off the Las Vegas strip. In 2019 my flooded front yard became poetic behind distorted glass post hurricane Barry in "Watery View" and the "Pier Next Door" overtopped by a stormy Lake Pontchartrain was taken in June of 2020. In mid-pandemic May, I found the nightclub sign in Metairie proclaiming the reason for closure, and photographed the corona design in the sky on the 4th of July on Dauphin Island, a small barrier island in Alabama. The tree on the house in Metaire documents the aftermath of hurricane Zeta this October. The home owners who were inside when the tree fell said it sounded like a bomb went off in the next room.
