Malibu Sandbags (2010)

I documented architecture that protects other architecture in Malibu Sandbags. The series was shot on Broad Beach, an exclusive stretch of oceanfront in Malibu where homeowners erected sandbags in front of their properties to block the rising sea. Over two years I photographed the erosion and witnessed the beach get smaller and the barricades larger. Now there’s hardly any beach and imported boulders conceal the sandbags.
