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.
Below is oil in a tidal pool
Below is the same pool
Below is the size reference of the pool, my foot is in a white bootie at the bottom of the frame
Below is a patch of oiled sand on a Waveland beach, I made the photo standing and shooting down
the 2 photos below were made standing and shooting at the horizon
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.
