Beyond Disney Photographs

Beyond Disney: Florida's Last Cash Crop
John Raulerson and Daniel Kariko, Curators

In 2007, photographers John Raulerson and Daniel Kariko decided to document the Florida landscape. This exhibit is the result of their journey around the state visiting farms, cattle ranches, citrus groves, housing subdivisions, and other places. From cattlemen at sunrise to an aerial view of a neighborhood, the images capture a wide array of the Florida that is "beyond Disney."

John Raulerson is a sculptor, photographer, and instructor in the Florida State University College of Visual Arts. A fifth-generation Floridian, he grew up in Bartow. As a teenager, he spent time working as a cowboy. He holds a master of fine arts from the University of Georgia.

Daniel Kariko, a native of Yugoslavia, came to the United States at age 17. He began college as an engineering student, but a short time later decided to pursue art photography. Kariko teaches photography and digital imaging in the Florida State University College of Visual Arts. He graduated from Arizona State University with a master of fine arts degree.
