I spent several weeks convalescing in Thailand during the winter of 2018. To my delight, the beach hut I had booked on the island of Koh Samui had the most magnificent ray of sunshine cutting through it each morning. And so, and it became my challenge to make the most of this sunbeam.
I've never had much patience for still lives. Truth be told, I'm much better at finding moments than creating them. But this warm ray of light was too good to ignore. So, I faced the challenge and even began enjoying the puzzle of piecing together a scenes out of fruit in a limited amount of time, before the earth would turn and the light would shift. All at once, my days took on a new schedule. I started buying fruit each day in anticipation of photographing the next morning. I extended my stay for another week all because of the sun beam.
