Kathleen Saunders (Charleston, SC) is a photographer who frequently returns to Florida's natural springs. Her work engages both the environmental precarity and history of kitschy tourism surrounding the state's once-pristine aquifers. She has interviewed local historians and retired mermaids and pored over dense water quality studies. In her riso-printed photobook, Sinkholes of Florida, Saunders distills this body of work into a deadpan collection of found images which oscillate between humor and dread.

Printed by our friends at Woolly Press in Asheville, North Carolina. Cover design and binding by Erik Pedersen at Drum Machine Editions.
