A selection of images from the ongoing series, “Junebug vs. Hurricane,” by photographer and writer Dylan Lewis. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Lewis is currently based in Athens, Georgia, where he is an MFA student at the University of Georgia. A personal narrative of grief, loss, and the vagaries of making, being, and belonging under late capitalism, the work is set against the backdrop of the numerous coterminous and avalanching crises currently facing us.
“My work attempts to disrupt the already fraught relationship between image, language, and narrative, as well as the ways in which those converge to influence how we experience our memories and how we envision our futures – both personal and collective futures,” he explains. “By showcasing the spiritual and material exhaustion endemic to our current moment, the photographs evoke a psychogeographic decay that both addresses the problem and seeks out subtle subversions, nodding to imagined futures and alternative modes of being.”
