Drift was inspired by my time on Sabbathday Lake this summer. My partner and I bought paddleboards in May and we spent several lovely afternoons slowly paddling through lily pads and grasses along the water's edge. I was trying to capture the quality of the light on the water, a breeze ruffling the water's surface, and a sense of peeking down below the water to the life below.
