  • Alone in the harbor, this one boat sat on her mooring all last winter. I know of tragedy in this fisherman's family, and at first titled I titled this "Refuge" with all of that in mind, yet the title didn't seem just right.

    Once again, this is very much a portrait of a man, a family, of complex relationships....and somehow "Azimuth" spoke to me of the relationship that we all, in our circumscribed worlds, have to larger forces.

    This is really two different photographs….the larger world beyond and the equally large, if more intimate, world within. I love how the boat has managed to keep open the little bit of water right around her....she is not fully frozen in and, somehow, there is resilience in that.

    And a sense of isolation, maybe even despair.
