Dermansky's work deals with social, environmental, and politic change. in the book are images from the BP oil spill and its aftermath, the earthquake and cholera epidemic in Haiti, the blight in New Orleans years after Hurricane Katrina, the fall of Mubarak, drought in Texas, tornadoes in Alabama, and the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Her work tells stories through cultural symbols capturing humanity at its most vulnerable, exposed and uncensored.sheI hunts for archetypes in the landscape and finds hints of the apocalypse in the world around her. She juxtaposes the mundane with the extraordinary, using photography as her voice, telling stories by means of visual statements.
