Bethany Souza | Sunshine State
Bethany Souza is a Floridian expatriate currently living in frigid Chicago, IL. She received a B.A. in Studio Art fron the University of South Florida in 2000, and an MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2007. She is currently an adjunct Photography instructor at Columbia College Chicago and at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL.
My current body of work, Sunshine State, is a series of photographs documenting west central Florida. The images in this series focus particularly on sites of tourism and private residences in order to emphasize the uniquely complex dichotomy between home and away that exists in the region.
