I find the shapes made by waves and water fascinating.
As a surfer, I am always in motion — never stopping long enough to soak in the constant beauty that bombards us. Moments that flash by so fast, there is no time to register the artistic masterpieces taking place in nanoseconds, that your brain still sees and creates a feeling that you can’t quantify at the time…
That’s where my camera comes into play. Once I started shooting white water and seeing these beautiful delicate moments captured in time, I was hooked.
In this photo, I see horses rising out of the water, charging through the surf. Manes flowing, rearing up in their wild moment of life before the dream disappears and the reality of solid water becomes evident once again.
I never get tired of these kind of photos. They ignite my imagination, reminding me of the childish joy of playing in the ocean and playing with toy animals and action figures.
In the galleries, I love to hear other people’s interpretations of what’s they see…
Neurosurgeons see the brain’s plasticity of rewiring itself from thoughts or new experiences. The intricacies of the human body are another complete wonder…
In our viewing rooms at the galleries, when the lights on the piece are dimmed, because of the pearlescent paper we print onto, flying droplets become almost 3-dimensional with certain drops coming forth and others laying down as the light changes.
The beauty of this piece to me is how each person interprets the abstract shapes and drops of water.
I am happy to introduce my newest release, White Water Horses.
