Blue Dunes, 2014-2021
Formed over thousands of years by wind carried sand, dune fields are one of nature's most beautiful and surreal environments. For the past 8 years I've been visiting several dune areas around Southern California as a creative escape from the region's sprawling man made world. When I enter into a dune field my perception is transported to a dimension that is guided by nature's collaboration between light, color tone and form. This interaction with the dunes environment inspires within me an emotional response that I attempt to visualize with this ongoing series of photographs.
