It is striking, it is infinite, it is always unique and the light has endless variations. My eyes were glued to Tria Giovan’s images, like a movie screen, when you already know the story but just can’t seem to tear your eyes away until the very end. The (non) action takes place on the beaches of Sagaponack (NY), the actors are revealed in the title: the beach, water, sky and from there, nothing goes as planned.
