When I go somewhere to photograph, I feel satisfied if I come back with one image I really love (usually out of hundreds). However to communicate a compelling story, frequently a series of images is required to illustrate the message. To acquire the images needed for this, I typically either shoot one place over the course of a few days, or make multiple trips back to the same area. On my recent trip to Corsica, I was very pleased to put together a very interesting series over the course of a few hours.
Heading out from the town of Calvi, I traveled down the coast to the Scandola Nature Reserve, a peninsula which is only accessible by boat. The voyage over open water was very rough, leading to quite a few barf bags being distributed on board. On arrival we were greeted with a stunning landscape composed of a series of sheer cliffs, inlets and caves carved in unforgettable red geologic forms.
Working quickly I captured an endless stream of amazing cliffs, monolithic landscapes and narrow passages between the rocks. The resulting images are an incredibly tight series juxtaposing the forms against sky, clouds and sea. Each image in the series builds a story of a place which is so unique, perfectly untouched, and exquisitely formed that it might be imaginary.
