Vanishing Florida

What a dream assignment! As part of the American Society of Magazine Photographers' national "10,000 Eyes" project, members of the Central Florida chapter spent last April 23-29 shooting pictures on the subject their chapterchose as most important to our region: "Vanishing Florida." Nationally, more than 5,000 photographers participated in the contest, which was sponsored by Kodak, Creative Color and ERM-South. National Geographic is now judging winners, and an exhibit will travel the country next year.

In the Central Florida region, more than 50 photographers brought back images of everything from country stores to pristine beaches. We've highlighted some of our favorites on these pages; for a more comprehensive look, visit the Tampa Museum, which will mount a show of the Florida chapter's pictures this summer. (The exhibit is scheduled for July; call the museum at 1-223-8130 for exact dates and times.)
