These are landscapes that I found in eroded boat hulls. As natural landscapes are formed through erosion and time, so, too, are these images seen on the side of boats. Both types of erosion yield fascinating, organic shapes, and vibrant, layered colors.
This series explores how we perceive a landscape, based on certain arrangements of shape and color. These images start with a straight photograph of some portion of a boat, often only a few inches wide, and then are lightly altered to emphasize the landscape that I perceived. So, for example, if you looked at the boat hull underlying "A Starry Night", you would see a similar scene, with the "moon" in a slightly different location, and a slightly different height and width. Otherwise, these are works of erosion, and a photographer's eye.
