The luminous photographs in Karen Glaser’s Beneath the Surface: Springs and Swamps were taken in Florida, home to some of the most unique and breathtaking ecosystems in the world, but a home that must live alongside unceasing development. Shot underwater, they are landscapes that combine elements of street shooting and documentary, the pictorial with the ethereal, portraying the complicated puzzle of the continued existence of these pristine springs and primoridial swamps.
