The rocky structures that dot the US Pacific coast, called monoliths, are strange and dramatic formations that rise from the ocean and dot the beaches of Western US. They are the stone pyramids of time, continuously being washed by rain and carved by wind and waves. Generated by volcanic activity, the monoliths are oftentimes surrounded by fog in a mysterious, dramatic, and otherworldly atmosphere. This set of images are part of a larger project imagined in white and black, as this was the most expressive way of re-creating these unique landscapes.
