A novel look at Ocean Beach in San Francisco from the artist's "À la Plage, À la Piscine" series. Each photograph in this series was shot from a doorless helicopter. In the photographer's words, "From above, a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape, and form. Each geographic location has revealed that the love of water is a universal experience, an activity that offers people a sense of freedom and joy. These photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape--and summer bliss."
