"Above a Black Sea", Photographs by Richard Sherman

Over the last few years, I have spent a lot of time chasing boats.

From tugboats to sailboats, from container ships to fishing trawlers, from

Naval vessels to crab boats: they all hold a mystical attraction. As a

photographer, I am drawn to the textures and geometries of boats: the sail

triangles, the arcs of mooring lines, the parallelograms made by wire and

shadows.

The images in “Above a Black Sea” were shot in Maine, Key West,

Antigua, Philadelphia, the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and Newport. I can say

confidently that I have enjoyed the journeys and the destinations. But behind

it all is the magnetic attraction of the sea: when the sun sets and the tide

rises, I yearn to put out to sea, to return to the familiar darkness of the

unknown.
