“The Photographer Tracing the Globalization of Rubber” May 2019   “Karlic has made this blight-prone and economically essential plant the focus of her latest series,  Rubberlands  (2014–ongoing). “Plantations are precise,  calculated  machines of replication, ecologies devoted to repetition and production, not very different in concept from the assembly line,” Karlic says. A photograph of the multibillion-dollar Minha Casa, Minha Vida (my house, my life) development in Brazil, at the confluence of the Tapajós and Amazon rivers, similarly emphasizes a commitment to efficiency: identical white houses stretch to the horizon in perfect rows, like trees in a plantation.”    https://aperture.org/blog/introducing-karolina-karlic/
