In 2002 I bought some beach property on the Washington coast that is absolutely guaranteed to fall into the ocean. I did it on purpose.
Yes, it was cheap, but that wasn’t my motivation. I am utterly seduced by Washaway Beach, where destruction and fragile, almost unbearable beauty collide. It is a humbling place, a tear in the fabric of reality.
Photography is the medium that best captures what is vanishing, and in this case, so is my subject. I am both witness and participant, photographing the beach into permanence.
