SAND (3)

Not that anybody is holding his breath, but I felt a little guilty for neglecting this blog. And as I was in the middle of showing my sand-based pictures, I feel I have to continue. I’m stuck in sand, so to speak.

This series is based on sand photographed on beaches in Staten Island and New Jersey (USA). I especially like bay areas, where ocean and river meet, and a lot of organic matter intermingles with the anorganic sand, forming tableaus shaped by the tides into intricate patterns.  I organize the series in three posts. First (today) straight sand pictures, which are tweaked a bit but remain fairly close to the photograph. In the second post, the images are drastically altered, mainly through use of light, contrast and saturation. In the third post, the composition of the images is also manipulated.
