This image is from the Land and Sea series, part of which was exhibited at McGuffey Art Center,  in Charlottesville Virginia last year. These images are from a variety of locations, though are tied together with the cool color palette utilized and the inclusion of a strong horizon line. The horizon line is a graphic element that I love, and think can be quite powerful within a photographic composition to unite or divide elements. While attending Virginia Commonwealth University’s photography program, I loved learning about how to use natural elements such as horizon lines and the rule of thirds to strengthen the message in a photograph. While studying abroad, outside London, I first came across the immensely inspirational Hiroshi Sugimoto – an artist whose work influenced me in the creation of the Land and Sea series.

One of my favorite things about living on an island is that you are surrounded by a strong horizon line, where the sky meets the sea. Wonderful to look out upon and great for creating photographs.
