THE SEA IS CALM TONIGHT

The Sea is Calm Tonight:

A ongoing meditation by the ocean informed by my desire to feel deeply and self discover. These images are intended to suggest rather than explain. With this work I am more interested in the observation and feeling of space as opposed to representation of objects. I am drawn to the mystery of the landscape and the pervading sense of the unknown. I have used long exposures during both day and night, as well as double exposures in this work. This poem by Tessho, written at the time of his death, conveys the feeling I have about these pictures and the act of standing next to the void and photographing:

Finally out of reach
No bondage, no dependency.
How calm the ocean,
Towering the void.
