The FIRST LIGHT series developed out of my previous works MOVED and SOUND PORTRAITS. It started in 2014 and is work in progress along the coast of the Long Island Sound in New York photographed right around sunrise. The work I produced during that time are abstract and almost painterly-like photographs of the Long Island Sound. Combining long exposure and a deliberately moving camera, the images literally blur the line between photography and abstract painting. The images are about letting go of conventions and aspire to be an inspiration for the audience to create their own story.
