I am looking at hurricane damaged landscapes photographed from above – from planes or helicopters as they survey and record the damage wrought by our ever more severe hurricane seasons. The post-storm scattered mess of flora, building materials, and ephemera of daily life also intrigues me. These images represent a new way of seeing a building and destruction cycle never before experienced to the extent we are now seeing due to the onset of climate change.
