LEAH DYJAK is an interdisciplinary, lens-based artist splitting her time between New York and Massachusetts. She received her MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Her site-specific work combines performance, labor, film, and photography to explore how generations of human use affect the ecologies of the place. Her images often push the edges of the photographic frame. Her work plays with perceptions of known and stable matter. She is an Assistant Professor of Photography and Video at Winthrop University.
Coastliners seen here is a selection of photographs from her series New Beach, photographs of the collapsed asphalt in the landscape at Herring Cove Beach of Provincetown’s National Seashore. The work charts matter in flux and our corporal response to the ever changing shoreline and the rising of the sea.
