Life's an Ocean
limited edition signed & numbered book
I am excited to announce the release of my new book 'Life's an Ocean', the culmination of a four month long project.
As a photographer and artist I’ve always been inspired by music. Music has always been a fundamental part of my existence for as long as I can remember, offering me the peace and mental space to wind down and re-charge. A well written and crafted song with strong lyrics is a special thing, we all have those favoured pieces of music that transport us away and invoke memories.
From being young I have always been drawn to the coast, to the rhythm of the tides, the sounds and smells, the moments of quiet with nature and the memories of treasured family outings sharing the experience of being by the sea..... my own place of quiet reflection. Combining my passions or taking inspiration from them to feed my creative output feels natural, it fires the creative juices to distill into a photograph those feelings, moods, emotions and memories.
Life’s an Ocean as a body of work is an interpretation of my passion for those coastal margins taking inspiration from the song title of the same name by the Verve and lyrics written by Richard Ashcroft.
The works are created by reacting to the sea by means of multiple exposure and layering of multiple realities. The works were all visualised, photographed and created whilst at the coast. It was important to have the immediacy of the senses to shape the final output.
The locations are neither distinct nor important, the images only seek to portray and capture that essence of feeling of which the coast conjures within me and always will.
“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
