The barrier islands of the East Coast. You know the beauty of them. From the Eastern Shore in Maryland and Virginia to the Outer Banks in North Carolina to the beautiful Golden Isles of Georgia. Chinoteague. Assateague. Hatteras. Ocracoke. Hilton Head. Edisto. Wassaw. Saint Simons Island. Jekyll Island. Cumberland. Thousands of miles of beautiful coastline, with dozens of barrier islands between the continent and the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe you are lucky enough to live on or near one of these beautiful islands, or maybe you just get brief encounters with their relaxing peace when you come to visit. But you can enjoy photographs of them all year long, no matter where you are.
My goal is to bring that feeling of peace and relaxation to you, wherever you are. Sure, you have you cell phone photos of these beautiful places. But you can't print those on a 30" x 40" canvas to hang in your office, reminding you why you hustle and earn. You can't capture the Milky Way or the moon rising over the ocean from Hatteras Island with your iPhone. Investing in photo art allows you to preserve and cherish the parts of the coast you love best. Sunrises from Hatteras. The lifeguard towers that dot your summer memories. Wishes you've made on shooting stars. Putting coastal photos on your wall will bring that feeling home with you.
My cyanotypes are one-of-a-kind photos, using a printing technique from the 1800s, to enjoy the beauty of the wildscapes of the barrier islands of the East Coast. Combining digital photography with analogue printing techniques, I can create an image for you that no one else has. The chemicals, light, and photo negative will never appear in this exact way again. Check out this blog post about the cyanotype process, or see available cyanotypes for purchase.
