These images were taken along San Francisco's storied coastline, extending from Point Reyes, Ocean Beach and the Presidio cliffs, through the passage beneath the Golden Gate Bridge and along the notorious "Barbary Coast" to Fisherman's Wharf.
I started shooting this project in 2016 while working in an office near the Hyde Street Pier. When work went remote in 2020 during the "Grand Pause,” we started taking long walks along the coast after sheltering all day in isolation. It seemed important to feel blood buzz through our bodies and beat in rhythm with the ocean's eternal pulse, to tune in and listen carefully to the new kind of quiet enveloping the Golden Gate.
