Man and the Sea


La mer est ton miroir; tu contemples ton ̢me РCharles Baudelaire

I periodically return to the sea, both in a literal and figurative sense. Going to the coast, at any time of year, in any kind of weather, and putting the vast ocean in front of me always helps to center me, always helps me to have perspective on whatever current craziness is going on in life.

It is always a good moment for reflection. The sounds of the waves crashing soothe the soul.

The ocean is a photographic motif for me as well, as I strive to show it in its different moods, and to show our uneasy relationship with its power and beauty.

Perhaps influenced this morning by Corey Rich’s photograph of a man dwarfed by a mountain, I found myself isolating the tiny dots of people on the beach against the impossibly vast ocean.
