Namesake, Recife, Brazil, 2010

Recife means “reef” in Portuguese, an allusion to the coral reef that lines the city’s shores. As our cruise departed from the city at dusk, I made this image of that reef, dividing the Atlantic Ocean from the city’s man made harbor. The evening light and overhead clouds, cause the two bodies of water to take on entirely different textures and coloration, an example of man’s effect on nature, and nature’s effect on man.
