Located along the Gulf of Mexico in Mississippi, Pass Christian has been almost totally destroyed by hurricanes on two separate occasions — once in 1969 by Hurricane Camille and again in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina’s record high storm surge. In her project "Pass," photographer S. Gayle Stevens creates an eerily nostalgic survey of Pass Christian’s post-Katrina ruins using the wet plate collodion process and a pinhole camera.

"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, — all in one." — John Ruskin
