WORK > New Work: High Tide Full Moon
This photographic work continues my interest in the confluence of art, science and the natural world. For a number of years I had been photographing in Delaware Bay during the summer months. Then one day I saw a horseshoe crab (scientific name Limulus Polyphemus) swimming on its back. Memories from childhood camping on the barrier islands near Lewes came to mind. I became obsessed. Exploring the world of the horseshoe crab engages me in contemplation of time, space, complexity, mythology and the wonder of this ancient creature that spawns during the full and new moons of May and June.
