DAILY IN A NIMBLE SEA picked by the esteemed Elizabeth Avedon in her 2017 photobook roundup.
Barry Stone's "DAILY, IN A NIMBLE SEA, is an anagram of “BAILEY ISLAND, MAINE,” where a tiny stretch of coastline is incessantly transformed by the interactions of fog, sun, and tides. When the tide goes out, a rocky field of seaweed is revealed. To walk across it is to traverse the ocean floor in the open air. It is a magical place, and for seven summers I have watched my girls grow and change against this backdrop. Photographs put a feeble defense against the passage of time: the still image halts the waves from breaking, only to paradoxically heighten our awareness of their inevitable movement forward." 37 color plates printed on matte paper. Cloth-wrapped hardcover with photographic tip-in, beautifully printed and packages as all Silas Finch books are made. Check out their several other titles: Silas Finch
