In the words of Ted…
“I want to bring awareness to one of the major environmental issues of our time through the medium of fine art photography.
Documenting the ocean at sea level has created a channel to introduce you to the issues of climate change through photography and as a member of the surf community I feel morally compelled to raise awareness in the only way I know how — through my photography.
The rise in sea level is not a single generation issue, but we are now at the threshold of a tipping point and this generation has the last opportunity to effect change before it’s irreversible.
As this project has evolved I’ve been able to reflect on the importance of sea level in my life, my entire existence revolves around it. Two years, 730 sunrises ago, I made a personal commitment to creatively document this silent change. A body of work that is designed to inspire and give rise to ponder, discuss and consider the effects we are having on our planet through our everyday living choices.”
