Aegean Stones: Page Samples portrays a seascape in western Turkey where I began to capture forms of living organisms mingled with mute stones (2012) within the sea. Through the refraction of light and by forces of nature's gentle winds, and movements of variegated fish, these forms are transformed. Each moment brings a new abstract portrait of the living organisms, as they interact with each other.

The Aegean Blue series, which is featured in this book, was inspired by questions of transience of life that one begins to contemplate when having reached a certain age or experienced a death. I have over the course of the last several years contemplated the questions that present themselves in the Aegean Blue series.

Each day the cool waters that wash these stones and the schools of small fish that pass them by furtively blowing kisses creates still a further patina of change and transformation. These stories are revealed in the imagination of those viewing the finished photographs. Time tells all. What you see is what you imagine and therein lies the beauty of this new work. - Laurence Salzmann
