DROVE ME LIKE A MAGNET TO THE SEA
The day I shot this with Molly Booth, for Tree of Life, the morning skies closed up, with rain sprinkling the rock faces and salty water filling the tiny cracks and weather-worn dimples. The sea was dark at first glance, but as with anything, it became clearer as it drew closer to us. What seemed so ominous and looming was nothing but gentle white wash by the time it hit our feet. I like that reflection as a metaphor for life, sometimes we jump the gun and formulate these grand scenarios, often scary and gloomy, these are based off of what we see from afar. But then we experience clarity, and what was once intimidating, is harmless. Sometimes humans create unnecessary drama. Eliminate the drama and the fear falls away.
I always love shooting, because I see the body as a tool for artistic expression. It's liberating to just BE, to top that, being totally immersed and at the hands of the elements just makes you feel crazy good.
Then I knew in the crystalline knowledge of you
Drove me through the mountains
Through the crystal like a clear water fountain
Drove me like a magnet, to the sea, to the sea
To the sea, yeah
