The artist

Jonathan Chritchley was born in London and has lived near Biarritz in the south west of France since 1998. Specializing in ocean photography, his fascination for the sea began at the age of 15 after moving to the coastal town of Lymington, a place renowned for sailing in the south of England. His photographs - simple, ethereal, mystical and always monochrome, provide a very unusual perspective of the landscape. Jonathan has exhi-bited his photos around the world, most recently at the famous Harrods in London : he therefore spends a large amount of his time travelling. His photos are based on and around the sea creating very characteristic images with a dramatic atmosphere. Jonathan chooses to work with low light in particular and when the weather conditions are unfavorable, he often uses long exposure to create an almost impressionist view of his subject. Fascinated by the sea and sailing boats, Jonathan tries to perpetuate the beauty and the purety of our fragile environment through his work.www.jonathanchritchley.net  ... See more See less

About the artwork

The Mariette schooner was designed in 1915 by Herreshoff. This American navalarchitect, a M.I.T. graduate, revolutionized yacht design. Nicknamed the Wizard ofBristol, he designed undefeated America?s Cup ships between 1893 and 1920. Chritchleyhas repeatedly chosen this ship as his subject. This time he has chosen a differentperspective focusing entirely on the sail. His aim is not to give a methodical description of the jib and the mainsail from the extended objective? The photographer provides an overview bordering on abstraction. Sails extend and swell in the wind whilst others are hauled down.
