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.
