Art is not what you see, but what you make others see

Eva Trust’s background in painting really comes through in her beautiful and artistic photo series Beach Reflections. The Australia-based photographer captures fleeting moments on the beach, when the wet sand acts as a mirror, reflecting more than you might think.

The silent sand reveals stories that often go untold. “Bodies undress as they enter the water, visitors arrive seeking ‘time-out’ and children play and explore the water’s edge with an uninhibited freedom increasingly rare in everyones’ lives today,” Trust says. “The scenes are recognizable and warmly familiar, yet the dissolution and semi-abstraction of the figures makes them flicker like mirages; the product of a dream or perhaps some heat-induced fanciful imagining.”
