Pose Me an Ocean

The nature is real even when it appears to us as a perfect background for portraits and pictures. The Romantic myth of the lonely man and the power of nature is reborn in our era as masses gather to catch the perfect image in the right location. The Romanticist has turned around, looking straight at us, at the camera. He is saying #smile! Yet, the image can be too wild and unpredictable to be captured, like an ocean under the full moon day.

Installation version also available.
