As our vantage point shifts, our relationship with the ocean changes. Closer up, some may find images of water challenging or threatening. Our past experiences can make it difficult to perceive a scene objectively, for what it is. Yet, as the distance increases, a level of safety is established, allowing us to see the ocean beyond its power and embrace its turbulence, chaos and beautiful formations. These images, from the series "Above" were shot on medium format color negative film and printed in the darkroom.

Poème d'Elizabeth Fleur Willis
I go again and again to nature for themes in my work. I am delighted and fascinated particularly by insects and how they provide so much for us even while we find them such a nuisance. But I am also drawn to the colours and textures of the land and sea. Since so much of my work is abstract, I find texture, motion, and repetition to be excellent shorthand for these unbelievably large places and ideas.
When I started my degree at Kingston University back in 2011, I wasn't really that worried with the environment, but my engagement with the issue grew over the years I spent in London.
