Product description:Shadowed Sand SShadowed Sand shows strong diagonal shadows falling across smooth beach sand. Vertical slats of a picket fence back lighted by late afternoon sunlight cast thin shadows in parallel lines. Support timbers with cross bracing cast inverted V shapes onto the sand beneath an abandoned beach house on the Texas gulf coast. This was one of two beach houses at Surf Side, on the upper Texas gulf coast, which were damaged, but left standing, by Hurricane Ike in 2008. High tide brought surf under these stilted structures twice each day. I was captivated by the strong graphic elements as these shadows grew and moved along with the setting sun. Since this image was made, both structures have been demolished. The diagonal shadows of this image throw a distorted representation of the supporting posts and fencing on the sand. This illustrates the way profoundly blind persons must use non-visual alternate sensory inputs to infer the actuality of their surroundings. In 2014, this image was selected for inclusion in the Shared Visions Exhibition for 2013-2014. In 2014, it was selected for the Four By five Exhibition in New Orleans, and was subsiquently published in View Camera magazine. This image was created on Kodak Tri-X black and white film in a 4x5 inch Zone VI view camera mounted with a 90mm Nikkor lens. It is presented here as an archival ink-jet print. 8x10 $175 Matted 11x14 $275 Matted 16x20 $400 Ships rolled
