Erica Reade
BROOKLYN, NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights

Media:Photography;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I spend a lot of time observing NYC beach-goers; their bodies swaying in the waves, splayed out half-asleep on sandy towels, or chasing small children around with more sunscreen. We are raw and exposed on the beach, stripped of our clothes, our makeup, our status markers. My involvement with the subjects is one of an observer, recorder and sometimes, voyeur. My intention is to capture the human experience of love and sensuality in public places, bringing a blended street documentary approach to the beach. My interest is the shift in human behavior from NYC streets to the beaches of Rockaway, Fort Tilden and Coney Island. There is something about being on the beach hat emboldens couples to enjoy more affectionate freedom, their inhibitions less hidden than anywhere else in the city. Beach Lovers is a collection of intimate moments shared by couples Iíve observed at the beach. This series is about the small moments of tenderness between couples, whether sharing a wet embrace, long laughs, or a lazy limb-entwined nap on a beach blanket. These photos illustrate love and sensuality in their purest states.
