Christian Chaize has created an amazing book that highlights images most people gloss over. The photographer was interested in an expanse of coastline in southern Portugal and he began photographing a single stretch of beach multiple times a year. Time and Tide: Photographs from Praia Piquinia documents the wonderful landscapes he captured in his endeavor. The work has an unexpected magic; umbrellas, towels, and other beach items have a new life in the series with their colors juxtaposed with the sand of the beach. The images of the ocean and the rocky terrain are captivating." - Complex.com
