This gorgeous, limited edition artist's book by Nicola Dill is a 48-page 'installation' of the artist's elegant and meditative photographs of surf grasses. Unstaged and recorded in-camera, the photographs comprising this series are gestures in patience and time. The individual pieces leave the narrative aspect of photography behind, focusing on constantly changing structures and lines, preserving on film the temporary etchings created by the surf and sandy shores of the Pacific. Nicola Dill's photographs have been widely exhibited and published in the United States and in Germany. 'Sea Etchings', her first monograph, is printed in an oversized format on matt Japanese art paper. This first printing is limited to 500 copies.
