WATER: What Better way to welcome the summer than to pay homage to the element That surrounds us. These particular artists have a passion for how they perceive Water and each image is very evocative and their work stands alone.
WATER, weather it be the ocean, lake or pond, is full of symbolism and metaphor. Out here on the East End were surrounded by it, so it’s impossible not to feel draw no matter where ever we turn. We all love being at sea level………
The work in this show is very inspirational. Some are slightly calmer while others are very dramatic. Either way, they’re all quite exciting. They make you feel closer to Nature.

Blair Seagram. “When my lens turned toward surfers I was inspired by their keen sense of timing catching a wave then riding across it. The sequence of images that make up the surfing panoramas is less about a decisive moment than about a series of moments or continuity of actions that are presented as one still image.” -Blair Seagram
