A black and blue life: a coal miner becomes a photographer of waves and seascapes

Australian photographer Ray Collins first took a camera in 2007 and used it to photograph his friends traveling around his house after long hours at a nearby coal mine. His attention quickly shifted from his friends to the shapes and forms he noticed in the waves. Collins was also attracted by the interaction of light and water, perhaps closer to the contrast than the shade of color. He poetically refers to this passage from the coal miner to the art photographer as a balance between his “black life and his blue life”.

The accolades, awards and sponsorships were accumulated on Collins leading to the publication of his first book, Found At Sea – The Ray Collins Photography by Ray Collins (2015-08-01)

He also has a wide variety of impressions on his site, and you can follow his photographs on a daily basis on Instagram. (via Laughing Squid)
