A component I want to explore with this project is a shift of perspective and a struggle to make out what the photo is showing the viewer.

All of the shots are human scale, but with a lack of size reference there's confusion as to the size of what's there.

the photos below were made shooting from a plane that was flying to the site of the spill. The best perspective on the size of these is in the first photo where you can see a shrimping boat at the upper right corner.
