From John Arsenault’s story for Design Arts Daily:
When I daydream about summer on the beach vivid memories spent with friends, lovers or often alone appear. I imagine the sunshine against my skin, the smell of the ocean and the sound of waves crashing.
I love standing at the point were the waves disappear into the sand—there I write my hopes and my sorrows, allowing the ocean to carry them away. “Summer Sorrow” is an image I photographed during a trip to Australia after the breakup of a 10-year relationship. When I took this image, I remember thinking: this is how I feel on the inside.
