Overview

"Sea Change brings together the imagery of nineteen artists who have returned to the world's oceans as photographic subject matter. Instead of focusing on maritime life, beach culture, or shoreline scenery, these artists look to the sea itself to discover its purest qualities: water, air, and light. The cultural orientation and literal geographic and physical orientation of the artists toward the sea vary. Whether their view be continental, coastal, island, shipboard, the work of each one reflects both the constancy and tumult of their subject. Featured photographers include Robert Adams, Tom Baril, Roni Horn, and others. Text by journalist and novelist James Hamilton-Paterson, who has written extensively on the sea, is included along with an essay by the curator."
