Description

At the tail end of a pandemic and economic recession, artist and photographer Florence Montmare embarked on a photographic journey, through the U.S., to explore the traces of the climate and health crisis. The first monograph by Swedish-Greek-American photographer and artist Florence Montmare showcases images made in 2021-22 while traveling across the United States from east to west (and back). Using an electric vehicle as a mobile studio, her 7000-mile roundtrip odyssey took her through nearly 30 states, on iconic roads such as Route 66 through the Midwest and I-10 across Texas and the South. Montmare encountered individuals from all walks of life, often at her frequent charging stops, and took the opportunity to ask people about their relationship to nature, and hopes and dreams for the future. As a woman and immigrant, Montmare focused on female, minority, Native American and LGBTQ perspectives and voices. The result is an unflinching, deeply personal yet universal portrayal of a transforming nation as the climate crisis alters the landscape.
