  • A soothing and meditative photography collection, inspired by the continual ebb and flow of water
Full Description

The water gives, and the water takes again. Waterforms is inspired by this ebb and flow, the eternal advance and retreat of the sea. Surf-rounded, storm-tossed boulders reflect its power, as do the pebbles that are sucked into its depths on the undertow of a wave. The sea has many moods, and this book invites you to appreciate them all. Admire the silky, polished surface of the shingle shores, the wet kelp strewn on the sand, and the striations made on the beach by the falling tide. These are the natural forms and patterns of the landscape: its heartbeat, its breath. Our oceans and rivers have a unique ephermerality; the art they create never lasts more than an instant. Yet Monnelly captures these instants in all their rhythmic action and harmony. Her evocative photography brings the ocean to you, no matter your distance from the coast.
