Title: Pacifica

About the Photo:

In Pacifica I explore the ideas of solitude, time, natural beauty and grandeur.

The rocky structures that dot the US Pacific coast, called monoliths, stretch from the US border with Mexico to Canada. These strange and dramatic formations rise from the ocean, continuously washed by rain and carved by wind and waves.
Generated by volcanic activity, the monoliths are oftentimes surrounded by fog, in a mysterious, dramatic and otherworldly atmosphere.

This set of images are part of a larger project imagined in white and black, as this was the most expressive way of re-creating these unique landscapes.
