Reviews

Anastasia Samoylova photographs boarded-up buildings, flooded pools and bright advertising hoarding, exploring how the city continues to expand, even as the foundations sink.--Hudson Brown "Gobe"
Turbulence comes out of nowhere. You can picture what follows, and many photographers do, but you will find no images of catastrophe in Anastasia Samoylova's "FloodZone." She is looking for other things, the subtler signs of what awaits the populations that cluster along shorelines. What is it to live day by day on a climatic knife's edge?--David Campany "New Yorker"
FloodZone constitutes an inventive addition to the slew of recent approximate visions of the Anthropocene. Samoylova's is a fantastic double vision, proffering depictions that oscillate somewhere between the already seen and never seen.--Tim Clark "1000 Words"
A series reflecting and responding to the problem of rising sea levels, ... [FloodZone] subverts the visual language of paradise to reflect today's environmental anxieties.--Tim Clark "Aesthetica"
In FloodZone...Samoylova peels back the layers of fantasy to reveal the impending horror that lies at our doorstep. Lush, beautiful and seductive, Samoylova's photographs ... are subversive images of paradise, glossy and sleek, subtly revealing something hellish lurking just beneath the surface.--Sara Rosen "Document Journal"
In FloodZone, the new book...Samoylova peels back the layers of fantasy to reveal the impending horror that lies at our doorstep. Lush, beautiful and seductive, Samoylova's photographs ... are subversive images of paradise, glossy and sleek, subtly revealing something hellish lurking just beneath the surface... when it's too late to go back but we haven't quite realized what we have lost.--Sara Rosen "Document Journal"
Samoylova tracks the slow, insidious creep of the climate crisis that cities like Miami ignore at their peril.--Jean Dykstra "Photograph"
Anastasia Samoylova's photobook FloodZone captures the insidious progression of climate change in Florida's southeastern city.--Hannah Abel-Hirsch "British Journal of Photography"
Photographed in and around Miami, Anastasia Samoylova's latest book, "FloodZone, is an urgent and brooding reflection on the rising sea levels rapidly submerging the city and its environs.--Gregory Jones "Lensculture"
Ana has taken a unique approach to the subject of climate change and rising sea levels. Much of the imagery around these themes is imbued with tragedy and drama, and is as hard-hitting as it is thought-provoking. Ana's images, though, are subtle and understated, a different perspective on the subject.--Alex Kahl "WePresent"
