Beach

The photographs in this series were taken along the east coast of the United States from 2009 through 2012, from Central Florida north to the Eastern tip of Long Island. Large format prints depict crowded summer beaches filled with crowds of sunbathers, people splashing in the waves, and children building sandcastles. These photographs are not limited to a single 'decisive moment', but instead reflect our fragmentary experience of a scene - a glimpse here, an impression there. Each image is composed of dozens of photographs painstakingly composited together, adding visual complexity and density.
