An ongoing series prompted by my move to the coastal county of Waterford. These images feature beach detritus left behind by the tide. I am fascinated by these slowly decomposing piles of organic and non-organic materials, all entangled together. The non-organic materials are bleached and faded, frayed, rusty, worn smooth, transformed by the action of salt water, light and the constant movement of the ocean. Driftwood and seaweed, the skeletons of marine animals and plants appear perfect and unspoiled, suited to this marine environment. On land, they change as they decompose. Photographing this detritus at close range and manipulating the images in a kaleidoscopic effect reveals unsuspected details and shows the viewer how nature makes beauty out of all things.
