Facing the Sea

The existential experience of being alone on the sea is the theme of each of  these seascapes.  The pictures were shot from a sailboat during several expeditions into the vast island world of New York. The journeys of more than 3000 nautical miles were documented in the photographic and literary logbook “Archipelago New York”  published by Schiffer Books in May 2018.  “Facing the sea” is a collection of fine art photographs that compliment the documentary images in the book.  Each image is a meditation about life and sense of place. The series was a nominee for the 5th Fine Arts Photography Award, 2019

Archipelago New York - Original Sries

The idea for the book "Archipelago New York" emerged after sailing for several years into the island world of New York, starting in 2011. 

The images also capture the fascination of the sea from land, imagery the sea gazers Melville talks about might have shared. 

The series received an honorable mention at the Tokyo International Foto Award, 2017.

Seascapes

Ongoing I have photographed seascapes on my many, often single handed sailing cruises along the coast of Long Island, the Long Island Sound, Peconic and Gardiner Bay. 

The dividing horizontal line has developed as an continuous element of those visual meditations.
