Artist Statement

Each photograph represents the experience of being in the vast presences of the ocean, captured in one eternal moment. These photographs are the consummation of many hours spent along the Pacific coast and explore the powerful, enchanting, and spiritual qualities of the ocean. It is simply air and water. This feeling is incredibly humbling and comforting.
Film has an immediacy and realness that is relatable to experience and memory. Light captures a moment on film and is used to recreate that moment in the form of a print in the darkroom. Large-scale photographs encompass the viewers’ entire gaze. At this scale they are no longer simply photographs, but provide a direct experience of the moment captured by the photograph.
