          Brooklyn based photographer Tommy Kwak captures stunning vistas and unique perspectives of the natural world. 

          Kwak's series "Seascapes II" offers soft, abstracted views of ocean scenes. Horizon lines, which are often crisp and grounding, are subdued into temperate suggestions. His colour palette of rich blues and soft pastels are cool and calming, with gradients working their way across each frame. Movement streaks each image, suggesting the motion of water and sky as hills are transformed into rolling waves and clouds become a rippling reflection. The line between sea and sky, earth and heaven is sublimely and stunningly blurred.

          Each of Tommy Kwak's seascapes are left anonymous, allowing the viewer to bring to mind the beaches and oceans of their memories. We are soothed and calmed by this gorgeous series and find ourselves looking at it often.
