Read More About Meresig

Meresig is the Old English name for Mersea Island in Essex, UK. It literally means Island of the Pool. I visited Meresig in January 2020 during a time of over-work and borderline exhaustion. The early morning drizzle at first seemed to echo my mood, but soon it started to give way to a fine mist. The tide’s slow retreat revealed an intricate fretwork of oyster beds. With just the echo of an oyster catcher’s song and the gentle lapping of sea on shingle for company, I made this portfolio to express the peace and relief I felt. I love a good storm but, sometimes, I like the calm after the storm even better.
