Photographer: Geoffrey Tibbenham
Photo: “Aldeburgh beach”

What makes this image so compelling to me is its simplicity; it’s lack of clutter and unnecessary information. We’re free to surmise how this ghost ship arrived on this open beach, and write our own narrative as to its story.

I know that given the opportunity, I would have wanted to photograph this scene in the same way, as this stark view would have arrested my vision. The seemingly bleak sky is a bit in motion too, unlike the dead vessel which had long ago been beached and abandoned. Less is more in this wonderful photo.
