Kathie Florsheim’s Living on the Edge

Just encountered Kathie Florsheim’s photo series Living on the Edge, photos of Roy Carpenter’s Beach in Matunuck, RI.  In her artist’s statement, she writes, “Clearly sweet summer reveries at Roy’s are numbered, limited by the ever-increasing ferocity of ordinary, day-to-day wear-and-tear from increasing frequency of storms …  I can’t stand the idea that it could disappear, leaving no trace behind. I am photographing this place, documenting it because that is the only way I know to preserve it.”
