Beachcombing the Alameda-Oakland shorelines of San Francisco Bay, photographer Peter Tonningsen has culled together an astonishing assortment of found objects to create art of surprising intimacy and transcendent beauty. Both somber and fun and flooded with color, the photographs in this book are captured by direct scan and reflect the symbols, forms, and objects of everyday life. The possibilities and implicit narratives that lie beneath the surfaces of this detritus challenge the viewer to reassess what art is. Flotsam & Jetsam is at once personal and universal, portraying a unique topography of this regional watershed while promoting awareness of the spoiling of our marine environments.
