The story of two worlds, two entities; separated by distance and their journey of reconnection.

The Spaces in Between series

While aboard an Irish ferry bound for Cork, a window reveals swirling waves beneath the horizon. The rocking of the ferry fills and empties the frame with a hypnotic dance of the sea. Cawston expertly times the shot, capturing a window predominantly filled with the sea, only a slender glow peeking through. The two chairs, positioned in almost mirror symmetry, face opposite directions, also add to the story. They journey together on the ferry traversing predetermined locations across a geographical boundary. 

A metaphor perhaps, about connection of two worlds separated by distance. Challenging as a situation and journey may be, there is a beacon of hope on the horizon.
