Series In Production Sneak Peek: Shells

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it’s always our self, we find in the sea”

EE Cummings

Shells are a lot like people. Some of them look alike, but no two are truly the same. A perfect specimen, is almost impossible to find; the broken parts, make the whole even more beautiful, the surface scars, marks of character, a life well lived. They change over time, grow, adapt. Some move with the tide, others travel freely. Strength on the outside, vulnerable within. If you hold them close, they’ll whisper you their secrets. Every shell, has its own story, a unique past and an uncertain future. Shells are a lot like people.

Photographing a shell is a lot like photographing a person. They do the work. They’ll talk if you’ll listen. The job is to capture what they have to say.

 

These shells were quite the talkers, look out for the completed work coming to the online gallery soon!

I am an adventurer, photographer and traveler. My whole life I have always preferred to look and listen rather than to be seen and heard. In a world of strife and struggle it is easy to miss the beautiful elegant nature of life, and the interconnectedness of our world. I am inspired by the reflection of light and love in all things. I believe that through photography, I have the power to help others fall in love with their world. Through love, comes conservation, through conservation comes restoration. It is my greatest hope that through my images the viewer finds their own messages of strength, hope, resilience, and beauty. On display throughout the United States, my work is available for purchase through private dealers, on commission, and through my online gallery at : www. rebelphoto.net
