Description

Adventure Life Productions invites you to celebrate the opening of the Abandoned Vehicles of the Everglades' Art Week exhibit at the Biltmore Hotel with a special vernissage on December 5th at 6pm. For those who can't attend our opening reception, the exhibit will be featured from December 6-10th in the Majorca Ballroom of the Hotel.

Through a captvating, highly artistic form of night photography, the beauty of abandoned and historic vehicles discarded over the years throughout the vast Everglades eco-system are brought to life. Photographed by accomplished artist Matt Stock and conceived in partnership with entrepreneur Charles J. Kropke, the project is the culmination of a 10-year plan to capture the striking beauty of vehicles that have been left behind in the Everglades.

By investigating rumors, analyzing satellite imagery, and utilizing a network of Gladesman, the artists have re-discovered and re-envisioned dozens of these forgotten relics. Model T's, military vehicles, construction cranes, buses, automobiles, vans, airplanes and other vehicles representing every decade and wheel configuration since the motorized 'horseless carriage' was invented were tracked through one of the most important wetland ecosystems in North America, and, for a variety of reasons, abandoned and forgotten.

This project is the story of those vehicles.
