The images in the series Sustain are an investigation into our complicated relationship with the sea. To sustain is both to support and encourage; to endure and to suffer. Humans rely on water – as the basic makeup of our physical bodies, the sustainer of fisheries and land-based farms, the regulator of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as a generator of power, a place to recreate, and much more. Waterways provide jobs and transportation to millions of people around the globe. The images in this series are meant to encourage a discussion about our interaction with, and impact on, the water. These works question our precarious relationship to this precious resource and begin a conversation about the interconnectedness of humans to the vast oceanic environment.
