The language of sea and sky

I love the sea and the sky above it. Two infinite shells surrounding the earth, both at the source of life, are in an eternal conversation. They are a mirror of each other’s mood and usually need few words to understand each other. The relationship between sea and sky is resembling an intimate relationship between two people: the occasional heated discussion or emotional conversation, sometimes even a fierce quarrel, at other times a gentle caress or a long intimate moment… Sometimes there seems to be some distance, but usually they are very close together. They are forever connected, they want and can not live without each other.

Every time when I climb the dunes, when I walk the beach and when I see those two in front of me, I feel like a privileged person. Privileged that I can listen to them, that I have the opportunity to see their interaction, that I am allowed to learn their language and may capture this on photo to share with everyone.

In a series of 10 photos I capture the words that the sea and sky speak to each other: the language of sea and sky.

The northwest coast of Denmark is the main source of inspiration for this project, but also of the beautiful words of the Indian poet and writer Rabindranath Tagore [Stray Birds, 1916]:

“What language is thine, O sea?”

“The language of eternal question.”

“What language is thy answer, O sky?

“The language of eternal silence.”
