Oregon Landscape Photography
Set against winter skies, the monoliths on the Pacific coast of Oregon are the subject of this series of low-key images in black and white, geological wonders that are spectacular and unforgettable
Pacifica is an open edition series of ocean landscapes
The rocky structures that dot the US Pacific coast have been a source of inspiration for many photographers and poets over time. A rock can have special meaning. The visual interpretation of shapes and textures become metaphors for subjects such as, solitude, time, stillness, and beauty.
A world in transformation, without being immediately changed, washed by rain and carved by wind and waves, the monoliths are oftentimes surrounded by a mysterious, dramatic, and otherworldly atmosphere. To convey this, the images were edited in black and white, as this felt closer to the spirit and the act of writing: black ink on white paper.
The project was created at the end of November into December under extremely rainy conditions, sometimes associated with fog, or a break in the clouds that let the sun shine over the landscape for a few minutes before going dark and moody again. The light and drama in the sky are reminiscent of an aesthetic inspired by the traditional Asian ink paintings.
Pacifica won several international awards and was published in Dodho Magazine and Light, A Journal of Poetry and Photography.
