Photographed on the bluffs of Ditch Plains with a large format camera, is the plain expanse of the ocean surface rendered originally in platinum/palladium and cyanotype.

Photographed in all weather conditions and devoid of the horizon, these abstract images speak to the emotionality of the ocean and the transformative power of nature.
