Essays by Richard B. Woodward and Petra Roettig. Interview with the artist by Jasmin Seck. "German-born photographer Renate Aller has been photographing the Atlantic Ocean for over a decade from a single point on the fabled Hamptons’ coastline. Her images capture the infinitely shifting colors and textures of the sky and water, and the beauty and grandeur of the ocean, providing a rich document of what has drawn people to this area for generations. The sublime beauty of this view, which Aller directly connects to the great 19th century German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, is also a metaphor for the landscape of the human emotions. Aller’s viewpoint is static, but the changing weather and light allow for a diverse series of images that open up a vast ‘visual library’ of memories and associations. Printed in Germany, the book captures the subtle mystery of her larger prints and the original oceanscapes."

Oh my goodness - I just adore the second photograph. I've just finished reading a book about the light and the sea in Cornwall, and this reminds me so much of the many changing descriptions I read about. Thank you ! Have a lovely week

I do not know how I missed this post: http://elizabethavedon.blogspot.com/2010/05/manjari-sharma-show-tell.html

But I'm SO HAPPY that a photograph has reappeared on here. I love these photographs so much...I'm not sure why yet, but they speak poetically to me.

The second picture makes me think of a diamond ocean in the time of oil ocean. We should treat it like diamonds.
Missed Your blog I feel, fantastic additions to my life:)
