Caroline Davis: Gulf Wave Series
June 09 through August 26, 2012
The Gulf Wave Series is an ongoing project to capture the colors of the sea from beneath the water. The depth of the water, suspended particles, and available sunlight all cause dramatic shifts in color. Davis documents these changes through photographs from the turquoise waters off Grand Cayman Island to the Emerald Coast of Destin, Florida and beyond. Using glass, wide-angle camera housings and print film Davis captures the water’s true color and luminosity in large prints that she makes with a high-resolution scanner, digital printer, and archival inks.
Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
