Inner Atlas - pt.1

This portrait series celebrates the human spirit through movements of the sea in an unfamiliar and forgotten space.

I felt intrigued to investigate the interconnection of humans with nature through the most pure form of wave riding, the primitive art of bodysurfing.

How does it feel flowing at the perfect speed, immersed within the fluidity of the of the sea? What is revealed when one’s spirit expands into the space that surrounds?

My aim to render the true essence of the human condition and a mirror of one’s self could only be captured within the moment and in a single breath. In a space that moved the subject and the viewer with equal pull.
