In this series I was interested in creating a dreamy look that depicts the human form engaged in an activity that demands contortions of the body. The human form and contrast with motion blur abstracts the image, seascapes provide the set. Humans being human in their great endeavor to appreciate life set on the vast stage of the sea.
Kinesolo is a series that started completely by accident. I was shooting some abstracts of the shore area in Malibu. It was near a popular surfing spot and I inadvertently captured a blurred image of a surfer in the corner of my frame. I was, at the time, looking for a new series that featured the human form. This shot struck me. The black wetsuit that most surfers were wearing at that time of year, when blurred made an abstracted type of silhouette. Wow time to get to work. You can clearly see that thinking in the pieces titled Kinesolo 1, 2 and 3, which were the first shots in that series. I shot thousands of images over many months. And then I began to edit.
I’m still discovering and enjoying the ride. Check back often to see the latest.
