AmericaHabitatHorizon by Kip Harris

I moved to the South Shore of Nova Scotia in 2004 and have walked my dogs along the shoreline ever since. There is a special quality of light here. It sinks into your soul and becomes a part of how you view the world. I watch the shore as a flâneur of light.

I moved to the South Shore of Nova Scotia in 2004 and have walked my dogs along the shoreline ever since. There is a special quality of light here. It sinks into your soul and becomes a part of how you view the world. I watch the shore as a flâneur of light.

These images are distillations of many days when the wind blew almost everything away except for the transcendent light. They are intentionally minimal. I did not set out to create seascapes. I’m a street photographer by inclination. The shoreline has become the street where I now most frequently wander. This series of seascapes focuses on the horizon. That edge between sky and water. I am playing around with the horizon as the axis that bifurcates the conceptual and realistic, the found and created, the perceived and imagined. The horizon disrupts or fractures the image plane.

TS Eliot, The Hollow Men

Between the idea

And the reality

Between the motion

And the act

Falls the Shadow

Between the conception

And the creation

Between the emotion

And the response

Falls the Shadow

Between the desire

And the spasm

Between the potency

And the existence

Between the essence

And the descent

Falls the Shadow
