HTMP is a limited edition artist book in three fascicles, sleeved together inside a folder, produced in an edition of 50 that was created in collaboration with Dust Collective. There is also a special edition of 25 that includes an original cyanotype photograph.
Photographed on the bluffs of Ditch Plains with a large format camera, is the plain expanse of the ocean surface rendered originally in platinum/palladium and cyanotype. This handmade artist book seeks to replicate the photographer’s intimate experience with her subject matter. Photographed in all weather conditions and devoid of the horizon, these abstract images speak to the emotionality of the ocean and the transformative power of nature.
