Over the last 3 years, Joy and Ben have been working on a collaborative project entitled Compound Fractures.  The photographs collected in this book were made in various ‘show caves’ around the southeastern United States.  Also referred to as ‘tourist caves’, these spaces exist at the intersection of commerce and ecology.  However, what began more explicitly as an exploration of our tenuous relationship to nature, gave way to a broader interest in the spatial strangeness and symbolic potential of these subterranean landscapes.
