Anastasia Samoylova: FloodZone

Text by David Campany.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Anastasia Samoylova: FloodZone.'

FloodZone is Miami-based Russian photographer Anastasia Samoylova’s (born 1984) account of life on the knife-edge of the Southern United States: in Florida, where sea levels are rising and hurricanes threaten. But this book is not a visualization of disaster or catastrophe. These beautifully subtle and often unsettling images capture the mood of waiting, of knowing the climate is changing, of living with it. The color palette is tropical: lush greens, azure blues, pastel pinks. But the mood is pensive and melancholy. As new luxury high-rises soar, their foundations are in water. Crumbling walls carry images of tourist paradise. Manatees appear in odd places, sensitive to environmental change. Water is everywhere and water is the problem. Mixing lyric documentary, gently staged photos and epic aerial vistas, FloodZone crosses boundaries to express the deep contradictions of the place. The carefully paced sequence of photographs, arranged as interlocking chapters, make no judgment: they simply show.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New Yorker

David Campany

Turbulence comes out of nowhere. You can picture what follows, and many photographers do, but you will find no images of catastrophe in Anastasia Samoylova’s “FloodZone.” She is looking for other things, the subtler signs of what awaits the populations that cluster along shorelines. What is it to live day by day on a climatic knife’s edge?

WePresent

Alex Kahl

Ana has taken a unique approach to the subject of climate change and rising sea levels. Much of the imagery around these themes is imbued with tragedy and drama, and is as hard-hitting as it is thought-provoking. Ana’s images, though, are subtle and understated, a different perspective on the subject.

Aesthetica

A series reflecting and responding to the problem of rising sea levels, ... [FloodZone] subverts the visual language of paradise to reflect today’s environmental anxieties.

British Journal of Photography

Hannah Abel-Hirsch

Anastasia Samoylova’s photobook FloodZone captures the insidious progression of climate change in Florida’s southeastern city.

Lensculture

Gregory Jones

Photographed in and around Miami, Anastasia Samoylova’s latest book, “FloodZone," is an urgent and brooding reflection on the rising sea levels rapidly submerging the city and its environs.

1000 Words

Tim Clark

FloodZone constitutes an inventive addition to the slew of recent approximate visions of the Anthropocene. Samoylova’s is a fantastic double vision, proffering depictions that oscillate somewhere between the already seen and never seen.

Document Journal

Sara Rosen

In FloodZone, the new book...Samoylova peels back the layers of fantasy to reveal the impending horror that lies at our doorstep. Lush, beautiful and seductive, Samoylova’s photographs ... are subversive images of paradise, glossy and sleek, subtly revealing something hellish lurking just beneath the surface... when it’s too late to go back but we haven’t quite realized what we have lost.

Gobe

Hudson Brown

Anastasia Samoylova photographs boarded-up buildings, flooded pools and bright advertising hoarding, exploring how the city continues to expand, even as the foundations sink.

Photograph

Jean Dykstra

Samoylova tracks the slow, insidious creep of the climate crisis that cities like Miami ignore at their peril.

Washington Post

Kenneth Dickerman

These photos explore how rising sea levels are affecting Miami.

Collector Daily

Loring Knoblauch

Samoylova has taken today’s Miami as her subject, and made a smartly layered visual portrait of the city, highlighting the seeds of coming climate peril that hide in plain view.
