For the past several years I have spent hours observing moving waters in rivers, lakes, oceans and seas. This process has often guided my travels. I have become captivated by the way they disclose their secret anatomy, by their life force, by their continuous rhythms of movement and transformation and by the way they capture and reflect light.
I have returned several times to the same vantage point in Punta Zicatela, Oaxaca, Mexico, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. On each occasion, I spent several days in the same spot observing and recording the ocean’s movement at different times of day.
