The rocky structures that dot the US Pacific coast, called monoliths, stretch from the US border with Mexico to Canada. These strange and dramatic formations rise above the ocean in a beautiful display of shapes. They are the stone pyramids of time, continuously being washed by rain, carved by wind and waves. Generated by volcanic activity, the monoliths are oftentimes surrounded by fog, in a mysterious, dramatic, and otherworldly atmosphere. This set of images are part of a larger project imagined in white and black, as this was the most expressive way of re-creating these unique landscapes.
