S. Gayle Stevens

S. Gayle Stevens

In English, ‘to pass’ can mean ‘to go by’, or ‘to die’ or ‘to go from one state to another’. Pass Christian was also the name of an artists’ colony in Mississippi that was destroyed by the furious waters during Hurricane Katrina. Only 500 of the 8000 houses survived the disaster, and many residents never returned. In PASS S. Gayle Stevens records the ruins of the artists’ village in small, intimate images, shot with a pinhole camera.
