[i]Sea Last[/i] was inspired by the stillness and timelessness of the ocean. The photographs were taken on a beach in Venice, Florida that I have been visiting every year of my life since I was born. The place is intensely familiar to me, yet the tides and power of the ocean change the landscape every year. It is always the same, yet constantly changing. I am drawn by the early mornings, the emptiness of the beach, and the quiet water, and often use this time for creative inspiration.
The musical portion of [i]Sea Last[/i] is released on a 3" CD, containing one roughly 19-minute piece, that is attached in the back of the book. The music is quiet and slow, gentle, empty, like the mornings at the water. --
