Over the years, abstract photography has been gaining popularity in my galleries. Sapphire Swells, Black Pearls, Water Matrix… all of these abstracts have one common thread. People experience the moment in a more sensory way — feeling the cool air at dusk, smelling the ocean air, hearing the waves come crashing to shore.
Viewers seem to come away from the photography in a more grounded way, feeling more relaxed and in-the-moment than before.
My newest abstract release, Ocean Ranch, captures the freedom and vast beauty of the Pacific Ocean. I love the cerulean color of the ocean and grassy-greens of the fields in this new piece. I’ve never captured these colors together in an abstract way before…
There is a sparkling, fresh energy in this part of the California that is unlike anything I have ever experienced. The air, the water and the light dance together creating almost mystical moments of beauty.
It’s my hope that Ocean Ranch inspires you to breathe deeply and appreciate the freedom, fresh air and open spaces that are so abundant on this beautiful planet.
“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in its entirety.” ~ Ansel Adams
