115: Matthew Swarts

Matthew Swarts
Beth, Long Beach Island, New Jersey, 2012, from the series "Open Water"

Series Statement
I have always come alive near water, and will always photograph nearby. I also love the very early morning. Open Water is an ongoing project and has a dual narrative. There are images of my partner and family framed against water, and images of the open ocean itself. I am curious enough to want to continue to watch both.
