Concept: Abstract motion seascapes - Josephine Young

Concept: Abstract motion seascapes

My aim with the seascapes project is to showcase the beauty of the horizon at sea, often at sunset, with different combinations of light, clouds and water, and utilising both long exposure and the enhanced smoothing effect offered by the addition of motion. The intentional movement accentuates the speed at which the natural conditions pass, the photograph freezes the moment, editing provides further enhancement and the final product is an abstract, minimal, peaceful blur of colour.

I see parallels between the beautiful but fleeting natural conditions and the fleeting time span of many beautiful events and moments in our lives. These pieces have all been given names relating to the passing or recording of time and are unconventionally presented in portrait format to further enhance the effect of only seeing part of the beautiful moment as it slips past.
