Christian Chaize, 1960, France, has had a career as a commercial photographer for the past 20 years. Since 2004 he has become obsessed with a small strip of coastline in southern Portugal. This was a new start for his on-going personal work and has taken precedence over his professional ambitions. In the series Praia Piquinia he focused on one secluded beach front and photographed throughout the years with a large format camera from the exact same spot at the same elevated angle. The results show the variables as light, weather, the ocean and the people on the beach. The following images come from the series Praia Piquinia, To Praia Grande and Paradis.
