Erosion

North American coastlines are eroding at an alarming rate because of rising sea levels and global warming. In many areas, shorelines are eroding enough to threaten existing human developments. This series of images explores the passage of time by looking at the relationship between static structures constructed by humans, beach and sea. The images were captured on different days and at different times of the day, on a stretch of beach on the coast of Southwest Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico. Time is controlled through the use of long exposures to strip away unnecessary visual elements allowing viewers to see what they would not otherwise see, which is the ethereal beauty of vanishing docks ravaged over the years by weather and the force of shifting sea levels.
