Earth’s End is an ongoing project, documenting the Atlantic Ocean, looking westward from Finistère, on the west coast of France. I returned in February 2017, determined to chronicle the devastating tempests that hit this part of the European coastline. I was bedevilled by weather and technical issues. A broken camera, a dead laptop, and 150kmh storms. Dead skies and dead seas.
On the occasionally calm days, when the sun broke through sweeping clouds, I could get back to long exposures, the slowing of time - a different way to bear witness to a world determined by the lunar cycle - full moons and high tides. But most days I was forced to shoot at 1/2000th of a second, to hand hold, to clean lenses and filters and bodies between each shot. Covered in sea salt and searching for some purchase on terra firma, a new respect for the awesome power of mother nature formed in me. It’s what I had craved to observe, to shoot, but its immensity was beyond my imagining, and most often, beyond capturing.
