WICKED MAINE

Rugged, dramatic and moody. Landscapes of Maine reflect its story and its soul. Contradictory, they are as uninviting as they are appealing.

WINDOWSCAPE

REVIEW >

Images of Washington's skyline taken through the windows of "The Cairo" located in Dupont Circle. Built in 1894, this historic building remains the tallest residential building in the District. Current debate over lifting height restrictions was part of the motivation to capture this uncommon urban panorama. The images juxtapose both interior and exterior settings, as seen from DC's landmark high-rise.

 

AWAITING THE TRITONS

Situated in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 13 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island known for its rough seas, rugged coastline and shipwrecks. In contrast to its reputation, the ocean was peaceful during my visit this summer, as if the seas were calmed by the Triton’s trumpet shell.
 
Enthused by the 19th century, Armenian born painter, Ivan Aivazovsky, who is best known for his luminous marine and coastal scenes, I wanted to give my seascape photos the quality of a painting. To photograph, I used a neutral density filter greatly reducing the bright daylight and exposing frames for up to 30 seconds. The long exposure time created a sereneness, softening the otherwise tumultuous ocean. The unyielding rocks became visual anchors amidst the drifting seawater.

MYSTIFY

Vasiljev has traveled to a remote part of the Amazonas Department in Peru to photograph landscapes and specifically the unique Wax Palm Forest. This forest contains one of the tallest palm trees in the world, reaching over 100 feet high. It is believed that it bridges the land with the sky.
