FilmThe Sea, 2021

I am from Largs, on the west coast of Scotland, I now live in the city and lockdown meant that for 8 months I couldn’t return to my spiritual home. When restrictions eased I found myself standing on the shore and it struck me just how much I had missed the sensation of standing next to the sea. I realised how much it meant to me. How my connection with nature had been cut. How cleansing the sea air is. My piece is about recognising that connection, it’s about noticing the things you once took for granted and it’s about the release of letting yourself fall into the warm embrace of the natural world.
