On September 11th 2017, Hurricane Irma made land fall over 300 miles away from Charleston, but she made a significant impact on the region. Photographer Jared Bramblett spent the day capturing and documenting Irma’s impacts on the Charleston Peninsula.
“I’m not sure I can adequately convey the experience of the day other than describing it as surreal,” says Bramblett.
Join us for a an evening in exploration and observation of that experience. Photography will be available for purchase along with lite bites and refreshments for your enjoyment. This event is free and open to all.
“Charleston is vulnerable – and becoming more vulnerable – to the impacts of tidal flooding. We experienced, according to NOAA, 50 days of tidal flooding in 2016, which broke 2015’s record of 38 days. Historically, we’ve seen the third (Irma), fourth (Matthew), and sixth (10/27/15) highest tide observations on record over the past three years. It’s time we have difficult conversations about how we move forward and address these issues. We need to learn how to live with water rather than fight it. We need to think about where we build – and where we rebuild. Most importantly, we need to engage and keep the conversation going.” – Jared Bramblett Photography
