Lulling Rhythms

Temporal intervals. Spatial intervals. Perception of time and dimension can sometimes transcend typical notions of reality. Sensations so enduring yet ephemeral like a full moon ascending the horizon or the clank of chain to mast.

Wandering harbors, piers and wharfs heightens my sense of time and space. This slice of the world is often tranquil and invites lingering. Boats drift in the water, the tide below the dock gently sways, undulating. Flow, rhythm, measure – salve for the fast-paced life.


The photographs in this series offer views of different states of reality - mostly serene; some revealing haunting figures one might see in a lucid dream. The properties of the actual subject, reflections in water, alter rhythmically and symbolize states of consciousness: subliminal, altered, and introspective.
