BaptismBrighton Beach, NYC, 2023-2024
captures the silent communion between humans and the ocean during winter, where individuals escape the relentless pace of the New York City life, finding solitude and self-discovery in the icy clutches of the sea. Beyond the physical challenge lies a deeper ritual, where the chill of the ocean serves as a catalyst for transformation and a connection to the elemental world. Baptism is about what can’t be seen, touched or told. It is about what can only be felt.
