Sweeping the Sea

After seeing the Helen Sear show, Chloe and I went to the Randall Scott gallery, also at 111 Front Street, where we met the gallerist who generously showed us some prints by photographer Chris Anthony. Above is my favorite image from that viewing.

I met a young photographer in Russia years ago who had a messier version of this image, titled something like "Babushka Washes the Sea". It showed an typical older Russian woman with wash rag and bucket, cleaning up the sea in a much less wistful manner than the maiden featured here.
