Award-winning Photographer Matt Stock has earned a reputation for his dramatic images of natural wonders, including his series of Abandoned Everglades.

Abandoned Vehicles of the Everglades explores the interaction between man and nature as seen through night-time environmental portraits of vehicles long abandoned in the Everglades ecosystem.

Each image was captured at night utilizing the highly specialized technique of light painting combined with long exposures and seasonally specific images without adding anything to or taking away from the scene. Everything you will see in these images was actually there on location: the super moon, the milky way, and of course the automobiles. Over the decades these man-made objects have become a part of the cycle of life as flora and fauna grow around and literally through them.

This interactive meeting takes place at the Pinecrest Library starting at 2pm. It’s also available on Zoom.
