Atlantus is a transoceanic photography project between Martin Toft and the Archisle Project. Prompted in part by the 350th anniversary in 2014 of Sir George Carteret naming of the State of New Jersey after Jersey his island home in 1664, the project asks how two places that share a name on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean perceive each other within archives and cultural memory? Atlantus tells a story in which estranged lands of incomparable scale come together in poetic gestures that ask us: what’s in a name?
