Bull Snake on a Sofa

When James H. Evans moved to Marathon in 1988, he was struck by its abundant wildlife. “Anything unattended will be overrun with animals,” says the photographer. Evans takes up that theme in his “Lucille” series, focusing on a house vacated by the death of an elderly friend of that name. In this photographic memorial, the land’s indigenous inhabitants—spiders, lizards, and other critters—reclaim the upholstered human environment. Twenty photos will be shown at Evans’ Lovegenes Gallery, across from the Gage Hotel in Marathon, through September.
