Standing In Shallow Water is a visual diary of someone who has never lived close to the sea, but finds it to be soothing and mesmerizing. In this project, the sea is as much a physical place as it is an imaginary space where I can question myself. During this introspective imaginary journey, I have discovered myself standing in these shallow waters, always laying on the surface, with a lack of spirit of going forward.
The pictures were taken throughout the years, across many places. The actual locations are unimportant to the project. The seas and oceans are perceived here as one immense unit. Short suggestive poems that I wrote further complement the images.
The submitted images are presented often side by side, in a forced dialogue between one another. The small size will force the viewer to approach them.
