About This Work

I shot this photograph on a foggy winter afternoon on Tybee Island's Back River Beach three months after Hurricane Matthew blew through the island. To me it seemed as if there was a sort of communication going on between the remnants of the pier and the solitary fishing boat just visible in the fading light, as if some mysterious message was being passed between them. In May of 2017 this work was featured in the Hilton Head Biennale National Juried Exhibition on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The image itself is 14" x 14" printed on an 18" by 18" sheet of museum quality paper and then placed in a 24" x 24" mat. I usually tear the edges of the paper and "float" the image in the mat. If you would prefer the edges not be torn and the beveled edge of the mat overlap the paper (the more conventional method), please let us know. These Archival Ink Jet prints are also available without the mat.
