SHERIF ELHAGE: LIGHT ON WATER


Sherif Elhage has taken a series of long exposure shots of boats moving through water. The result is quite amazing, and a little surreal. I refer back to a post a couple of days ago about our everlasting desire to view night time illuminations. Sherif has taken advantage of this but from an interesting perspective – and in doing so has essentially morphed the subject matter into something new and unrecognisable. Depite being a long exposure shot the sense of motion here is so far removed that it feels like we are looking at some unknown, yet beautiful object set against a dark backdrop of black water and a moonless night sky.
