Selections from Chip Hooper's series California's Pacific are included in this catalog, along with a haiku by Jane Reichhold of Gualala, California. Hooper began to photograph the ocean along the Pacific Coast in the late 1980s, lured by its majesty and tranquility—and by the unique quality of light found there. California's Pacific balances lush, descriptive pieces with minimalist, abstract images in which light and water are the only subject. This catalog accompanied a 2004 exhibition at Robert Mann Gallery.
