Andrew Gold photographs the hypnotic turbulence of the ocean

“It becomes possible to get lost in a still image, and hopefully experience the sense of calm, stillness and wonder I experienced as I created these photographs.”

As our vantage point shifts, our relationship with the ocean changes.  Closer up, some may find images of water challenging or threatening. Our past experiences can make it difficult to perceive a scene objectively, for what it is.  Yet, as the distance increases, a level of safety is established, allowing us to see the ocean beyond its power and embrace its turbulence, chaos and beautiful formations. It becomes possible to get lost in a still image, and hopefully experience the sense of calm, stillness and wonder I experienced as I created these photographs.  

This work is all shot on medium format color negative film and printed in the darkroom.
