I love making photographs by the sea. There's something that focuses the mind that I don't find anywhere else. Something to do with the tranquility of the surroundings juxtaposed with the audio bombardment of the sea as it pounds the rocks relentlessly or the sound of waves gently lapping on the sandy beach as though it were caressing it with a gentle kiss time after time. On a beach or shoreline, the sound of the sea and the wind combined can make one feel completely alone even in a throng of others, forced into one's own inner mind and contemplate one's own insignificance faced with such an almighty force.
