Shelter is a series of photographic images documenting found structures on a wilderness beach on the Washington Pacific coast. Each year winter storms toss giant felled trees onto the beach, some over 6 feet in diameter and 60 feet long. Smaller logs pile onto them both through the violent waves but also by travelers wanting to set up temporary shelter. The remaining structures are temporary hut architecture designed in collaboration with random natural processes that are wiped away and reconfigured each year by winter storms.
