An Ode to the Sea
Morgan Maassen's work behind the lens is almost immediately recognisable, whether still or in motion. There's a certain delicacy etched into his imagery and always an intimacy with his chosen subject. And this case, his subject is the ocean itself rather than those who reside and glide about in it, on it or around it. Yes, there's some surfing, but for once that's not why we're watching. Morgan Maassen traveled to Hawaii, Tahiti, Maldives, Barbados, Indonesia, Mexico and California to shoot this mesmerizing video poem highlighting waves and surf. Enjoy.
