New York-based photographer Anthony Goicolea has produced several series of his photographic work. One of them, Shelter Series, takes a look at an anonymous band of masked people, of unknown age or gender, who have taken to living rough, or off the land. It is a peek into a fictitious world several steps removed from summer camp, with overtones of Lord of the Flies. Although Goicolea’s characters represent a desire to escape the constraints of community in a more organized setting, there is clearly a sense of foreboding lurking like the gnarled roots of the trees that shelter them.
