During the eight weeks surrounding the 2012 election, eleven photographers gathered in Florida, twelve years after the disputed vote that arguably changed the course of the 21st century. Although the photographers worked independently, they moved towards some common themes: The stunning number of disenfranchised voters in Florida, the complicated processes through which realms of inclusion and exclusion are defined there, the difficulty of initially discerning deep political and philosophical divides among neighbors. Looking back at their work as a group, the photographers came to see both Florida and the American political process as a kind of swap shop: Places where ideas and identities are traded in, recycled, and acquired secondhand; open-air markets for consumption, garbage and reuse. This publication is the result.

With: Bruce Gilden, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Paolo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Mark Power, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Alec Soth, Zoe Strauss, Mikhael Subotzky, Donovan Wylie. 88 pages w/ 12 page insert.
