Arienzo Beach, Positano Italy (2017)

My digital camera, protected by a special housing that lets me shoot underwater, is my tool for exploring the boundaries between land and sea. In my “Aquatic Street” series, shot at public beaches in Italy, Hawaii, and Mexico, I place myself at the waterline, making the waves my foreground and sometimes dipping my lens a little below them This allows me to capture beach culture from the vantage point of a swimmer. My photographs are rooted in my lifelong fascination with water imagery and beach culture, a subject matter drawing on my deepest childhood memories. My photographs are infused with vivid colors and layered compositions. My aim: to evoke a hybrid sense of place composed of shifting seas, changing skies and the precarious land beneath our feet.
