|About the Beachcombing series|
I live on an island off the coast of Maine, and I beachcomb all year round. Each photo in The Beachcombing Series documents the things I found beautiful or curious on a particular beach on a particular day, forming a set of stylized beach portraits. The crisp white background and the precise arrangements contrast with the odd shapes and rough textures, both highlighting the individuality of each object and unifying them all into a larger composition.
The resulting photos look vaguely scientific, with echos of pressed botany specimens and Linnean classification diagrams. In a way they are. But where most scientific illustrations present answers, these photos are a way of articulating my questions.
Photographs can be purchased here on the website. Framed photos, postcards, and notecards are also available in my shop: www.quercusdesign.etsy.com
