This short “summer series” – seven shots taken in Agios Prokopios, Naxos Island, Cyclades, during a period of 1 hour with a 50 mm lens – helped me explore the lines/feel of continuity between land and sea.
I was probably looking for a personal sense of space where the horizon shapes a continuity across the shots. I was looking for a sense of surprise too – catching the amazing moment when the eyes alight on the water over the dunes. There definitely is a feeling of relief and amusement in each image to the extent that the horizon is “broken” or “interrupted” by humans: their familiar presence dares to leave the beach and embrace the water unconditionally.
