Photographed on the bluffs of Ditch Plains with a large format camera, is the plain expanse of the ocean surface rendered originally in platinum/palladium and cyanotype. This handmade artist book seeks to replicate the photographer’s intimate experience with her subject matter. Photographed in all weather conditions and devoid of the horizon, these abstract images speak to the emotionality of the ocean and the transformative power of nature.
