Kathleen Saunders (Charleston, SC) is a photographer who frequently returns to Florida's natural springs. Her work engages both the environmental precarity and history of kitschy tourism surrounding the state's once-pristine aquifers. She has interviewed local historians and retired mermaids and pored over dense water quality studies. In her riso-printed photobook, SINKHOLES OF FLORIDA, Saunders distills this body of work into a deadpan collection of found images which oscillate between humor and dread.
