I have been working hard on the artwork for a new book these past few months. None of us could have guessed the book's release would coincide with the nation's worst oil spill -- right here in our Gulf of Mexico -- which threatens to turn Florida's coast from UnspOILed to despoiled. The book is a collection of 38 passionate voices speaking for the beautiful Gulf coast of Florida. My photographs, turned into black and white "inkblots" head each essay, as well as the book's cover. Here is a sample of the inkblots, as well as some excerpts lifted from the pages of Unspoiled and laid over a few of my color photos (most of which are not 'inkblotted' in the book).
