For decades I have cut up photographs and combined them to form new worlds. Now I do it in Photoshop exploring a world of new possibilities. The Sea Level Series are crafted using images made in historic coastal buildings, like Fort Clinch and Fort Pulaski where sea level is measured, and structures on Ossabaw, St. Simons and Cumberland Islands, combined with images of water. Usually the beach is place for play and appreciation of great beauty where a view of the water is highly valued. As sea level rises, that same charismatic water could become a threat. It can be a scary proposition or, in the spirit of James Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis, it can be beautiful to watch Mother Earth reshape our shores.
