Whilst photographing the architectural forms at each plantation for the Slave Cabins project, I collected plant specimens - the new inhabitants of these places - and photographed them in the lighting studio. This served as a way to dislocate the specimens from their original spaces – the same that happened to the former slaves that were forced to live and labor on these plantations.
