Josef Jacques photography project, Gateway to Yosemite, hits home (no pun intended- really).
During frequent visits to my former south Florida in-house studio, I have witnessed the neighborhood become a lonely, decaying landscape--yards brown and unkempt, hurricane shutters in place year-round, incomplete remodeling projects, and last week, a falling roof. The neighborhood is literally half empty. Three years ago, it was alive: all proof, not only of a suffering economy (south Florida has been hit particularly hard), but of the impermanence of things and the organic nature of the concept of home and hearth.
