Echo's Breath

Alain LeFort

Lefort’s large-format photographs, created on his journey through the Florida Everglades, present an ominous oasis rife with subtle distortion. Composed of superimposed digital images, each tableau presents a densely layered fragment of the landscape. Disparities of spatial depth and focal length in the images reveal hints of its construction, imbuing the idyllic setting with a sense of disquietude. Representative of the natural world and its fragility, Echo's Breath challenges the same desires it propagates.
