Swimming Leaves II
On The Surface is a collection of water reflections of estuaries, lakes, boat harbors, rivers and any body of water. I find boats, buildings or trees being reflected in the water and the with the help of the tide, wind or my boat I shoot the changing images from their reflection. Sometimes shooting hundreds of images of the same reflection I later in the editing process find the images for this collection.
Many of my images are of water. Water is a constantly moving element, changing form, shape and color. With my camera, I capture a fraction-of-a-second, a glimpse into it's ever changing movement. It is through these windows of time, that I connect with the beauty of water's movement into form. I use the camera to see another view of the real world, to explore hidden images that emerge from nature. The true essence of photography lies beyond pure sight; it goes deeper into the soul, past everything known as color and form. I like to think that my photographs are all real images of nature seen from this deeper place within myself. Here I am able to find my connection to my soul.
