Richard Misrach’s Extraordinary Beach Photographs

Richard Misrach is an American photographer “firmly identified with the introduction of color to fine art photography in the 1970s, and with the use of large-format traditional cameras”. It may seem that Richard Misrach took the photographs on these pages while hovering over different beaches around the world. But he actually shot them all from the same high-rise hotel in Hawaii. Misrach, a 59-year-old fine arts photographer known for his pioneering work with color and unsparing images of the despoiled American West, says he enjoyed the lofty perspective from the hotel’s balconies: “I always thought about it as being a God’s eye view, looking down and seeing these amazing human interactions.”
