"Paradise" by Amie Potsic


Archival Pigment Print on Silk, dimensions vary, 2019

Girl in the Garden: Danger in Paradise explores female agency, the wooded lifeblood of our planet, and the fate of humankind.  After photographing my daughter in the lush forests of the northeastern United States, I traveled to Paradise, California and surrounding forests (located upwind from my extended family’s home) to photograph the complete devastation caused by the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history.  Seeing what we should preserve and what happens when we don’t sobering to comprehend.  By introducing magical and narrative elements, to an otherwise gigantic and seemingly abstract problem, I approach the issues more intimately so we can see ourselves in the paradigm.
