Tiny Human Figures on the Beach via MMM
On the Beach is a series by American photographer Richard Misrach that reminds us of how small we really are in this enormous world. In each beautifully composed shot, Misrach separated himself from his subjects by setting up a bird’s eye view from a hotel balcony overlooking Hawaiian beaches. He narrowed in on swimmers and sunbathers as tiny specs within what seems like an endless landscape. In more than one way, the artist creates powerful feelings of isolation and loneliness that remind viewers of our individual vulnerability in this world.
