The images in this series were taken on August 31st, 2017 on Cape Cod between 11:18am and 1:33pm. The last image I made that day was of a dead minnow that had for a moment washed ashore. I almost didn't notice it, having been mesmerized by the growing swell for the past couple of hours. A year later, sorting through an old harddrive, I almost didn't notice it again but something about the minnow image held my attention. As I began to look closer at the rest of the images from that day, the minnow became an important theme. A theme of fragility, chance, life, death, and time. Looking through these lenses, the photos from a typical beach day began to stand out to me. I think in a way, we are the minnow - small and perhaps unnoticeable in the grand sweep of time, yet have the power to impact those who stop to take a closer look.
