This series acts as an ambiguous portrayal of the perturbed sentiment that currently stems from contemporary society. Throughout the piece, a solitary figure is placed in relation to the enormity of the ocean. The blatant disparity occurring between the magnitude of the landscape and stature of the subject indicates precariousness and isolation as well as vulnerability. While the scenes may initially demonstrate a level of quietude, the presence of the sea within the frame references the figurative notion of being on the edge through its geographical signaling of boundaries. In each photograph the subject is turned away from the camera lens. Their distant gaze hints toward looking elsewhere for comfort and release from their current situation. Such sentiments are increasingly relative to modern society where insecurity is prevalent.
