The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
In 2016 I spent my second summer in Alaska working on the back of a commercial fishing boat. The inspiration for this photo series hit me when we embarked on what turned out to be a 5 week fishing excursion. At one point I didn’t set foot on land for 20 straight days. Every day the horizon crept closer, yet stayed ever expansive. I would stare at that line where the sea met the sky, wondering what secrets it held for the day.
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
Thus, the never changing yet always different horizon became the subject for this project. Every day I took photos of the horizon, documenting my view from the boat. I also made notes about what we did each and everyday. Each photo is paired with the description from that day.
