Drawn to the a mysterious spiritual realm that awaits us just beyond the visible horizon, Nova Scotia-based photographer Jeff Friesen captures the sea in majestic ways. While working on another project on the Atlantic Ocean, the artist was compelled to take casual photographs of the evening seascape; later, he composited these imperfectly exposed, blurry long exposure shots into single images.Like paintings by great Romantic painters, each of Friesen’s imagined horizons grasps at the unknowable and divine within nature. Through his lens, we might sit in solitude on the shore, contemplating the movement of space and time.
Friedsen’s impressive body of work have garnered him international acclaim, and his images can be found in National Geographic, Photo District News, Canadian Geographic and American Photo.
