The “Florida Safari” series is a fabricated historical account of the past. Over time, facts can be distorted or reinvented to suit the needs of the present. Documentary photographers can manipulate their reporting in such ways as isolating persons in a crowd, choosing selective lighting or a particular lens to demonstrate their own creative visions and versions of history. Through contemporary photographs I create a past that never happened. Emulating the lower technology of early photographic equipment, materials and vision, I present fabrications of exploration and discovery while injecting elements available only through today’s computers and advanced cameras and lenses that hint at the false narratives presented.
