2009" is my most recent series of images relating to my personal
connection to the sea. Having lived my life near the shores of the east coast
of the United States, the endlessly shifting moods of the sea have proven
irresistible to my camera's lens.
This winter has proven cold and isolating, and the Rockaway
Beach shore in Queens, New York was softly gray and compellingly beautiful one
Sunday morning, as yet another storm approached.
The air was freezing and eerily still as the sun made one
last attempt at warming the earth, before the swirling snow covered sand and
surf with a thick blanket of dense, white fog.
The photographer's point of view can sharpen the perception
of a moment that is fleeting and transitory. Starting from what is complex, it
is possible to reach what is simple and timeless.
