New Zealand's South Pacific and Tasman Sea is Chip Hooper's latest work centered around ocean photographs. This monograph finds Hooper in the beautiful land of New Zealand where the photographer has matched — and arguably surpassed — the technical precision of the early masters of landscape photography whose work inspired him years ago. Hooper's pristine silver prints convey his unique contemporary vision of natural beauty — he captures the vast solitude and quiet spirituality of the ocean as few artists have before him. These meditative studies of sea, sky, and atmosphere preserve the emotional communion between the artist and his subject and encourage the viewer to experience that same tranquil state of mind. - From the gallery description
