“Channel 1” by Anita Getzler, 2015, photograph

The ocean offers its beauty in grandiose as well as diminutive scale. My photographs are moments observing what goes unobserved — of honoring the smaller part of the vast whole. This often results in a view of nature as abstraction. It is a visceral experience, capturing what my heart and mind encountered in that moment through an intuitive lens. The intention is to transcend the materiality of the image, remove notions of time, view with clarity, and portray the grace, beauty and power of the earth’s waters.

“It flows on and on, and merely fills up all the places through which it flows; it does not shrink from any dangerous spot nor from any plunge, and nothing can make it lose its own essential nature. It remains true to itself under all conditions.” ~I Ching, Hexagram 29 – K’an, The Abysmal (Water)
