Naomi Fisher’s photographs in this exhibition underscore the clash between Miami's untamed tropical environment and its tendency toward artifice and materialistic excess. Weaving a female figure into mangrove roots, Fisher alludes to darker sides of the landscape and Ophelia-like struggles between innocence and sexuality.
