Richard Misrach is internationally renowned for his carefully considered, beautifully rendered epic works. In this, his latest work he hones in on our delicate relationship to the sea.

Misrach uses a gorgeous, slowly shifting colour palette gleaned from changes in depth and tide; abstract patterns of waves and rippling water, and beaches both empty and cluttered. Throughout the series, Misrach carefully balances the minutiae of human gesture against the massive scale of the sea. In some images, a lone figure floats in a liquid field of brilliant turquoise‚ or in others, lies beached and partially buried.
