ND 0.90 Series
To the photographers among you, the name of this series will probably make sense. To those of you not familiar with the term, it simply refers to a filter required when shooting long exposures in brightly lit situations. All images in this series are shot with long lenses at long exposures.
Much of my work over the past few years has been an exploration of interfaces between environments and objects within those environments, and the manner in which they interact. The interface between air, water and shore is one of constant tension as each environment exerts its influence over the others. Witnessing this interaction can be exhilarating, intimidating, calming and inspirational. The water in these images can seem calm, violent, soft, sharp, dark and bright, sometimes containing contradictory traits. I see in these images a correlation with human emotion. Emotions never exist in a vacuum; they are always colored by others. Exhilaration can be accompanied by trepidation, fear by excitement, calm by underlying tension, or even joy by sadness. A photograph has the power to capture many conflicting states for our inspection and reflection. —Mark Thayer
