In Curran Hatleberg’s latest project, the Florida of leisure and artifice, of Disney World and Miami Beach, is nowhere to be found.
Curran Hatleberg’s new project, “Shadow Country,” is named after Peter Matthiessen’s novel about the brutal Florida frontier of the early twentieth century.

Curran Hatleberg has driven from coast to coast at least five times since he began taking photos on the road. "When I started I was interested in looking for some sort of shared familiarity and human contact in a country I called home but I didn’t know much about," he said.
The photographs I make, either found or invented, are my own fictionalized version of America and its inhabitants. My work strives to mediate and reimagine the American experience, in hopes of communicating a personal understanding of our shared time and place
The world is there to be watched, to be seen; and a good photographer will visually organize its content into pictures that make us see what we could but usually don’t see. And crucially, one can try to take apart a good photograph and figure out how it operates, but it will still work afterwards
