These photographs were taken over several years on Southport Island in Maine. They were born of frustration---on a beach in Maine with "nothing" to photograph. I stayed and walked the small beach, not looking for photographs but for direction. It came when I began to take in faint, fragile, complex and lively lines that recorded the receding tide.They present incongruities of space, content and abstraction and provide their own narrative in otherwise straight-forward images. I have not attempted to hide or obscure anything --- these are simple photographs.
