Water’s Edge is a photographic exploration of bodies of water and their borders. The photographs were made on different continents over more than 20 years. The result is a portfolio of images intended to connect to our emotions, to elicit a sense of wonder.
Each image is meant to stir the memory as much as the imagination. The vast, breathtaking horizons that bodies of water can produce and the intimate activities that take place along the edges of those bodies, both evoke simple pleasures and serious reflection. I have been drawn to the edge of the water to find solace, a renewal of energy and a reminder that we are connected to the infinite.
