"Debra Bloomfield's hypnotic photographs provide a visual map of the powerful interplay between sea and sky.
Over the years, on a single lonesome stretch of beach, Bloomfield has captured an undeniably intimate portrait of the ocean at rest.
Almost impressionistic in their tone, this collection of 60 photographs chronicling seascapes smudging into a series of hazy horizons creates a striking contrast with what we've come to expect of ocean photography.
'Still' is a captivating and entrancing vision by a unique voice in contemporary photography."
