Phillip Van: Breezy Point

Photographer Phillip Van spends much of his working life documenting the ordinary and mundane as well as  the “ surreal in the everyday and the lives of adolescents and outsiders”. In this series of photographs Van has beautifully documented the effects of a serious hurricane on the coastline of ‘Breezy Point’ in the U.S. The cataclysmic effect the hurricane had on the surrounding suburbia is like something from a horror film – with houses laid to ruin and buildings flattened in the wake of the torrential winds and rain. Both the thing of nightmares and beautiful in its own right.
