Strong sunlight suitable for printing my cyanotype, gum dichromate, and Van Dyke prints has become a rarity over these winter months. So, I have been plotting out new projects while I await the sunshine’s return.
One such gestating project takes the oceans as its subject. These are obviously deep entities with storied pasts and uncertain futures with geopolitical implications. But growing up along the Atlantic and now living by the Pacific has allowed them to be familiar fellow bodies. As I begin taking my initial studies, though, I do not yet know what direction my own inquiry might take.
But there is perhaps something poetic about turning to the ocean while awaiting the sun.
