Strong Winds and Powerful Currents

Project: Upon Sand
Description: In Upon Sand, Miller Taylor investigates the shifting sands of the North Carolina coastline. His sprawling photos capture places where sand “is shaped as much by state and federal governmental agencies, developers, conservationists, and the New Deal as it is by the wind and waves.” These images depict the built environment of the state’s beaches, featuring places where ocean, sand, and now-fragile construction come together in a unified landscape.
