Chasing Waves NFT Collection
December 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - December 13, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
I’m a photographer releasing my first NFT collection titled “Chasing Waves” on the Opensea marketplace. Here’s my story:
From a very young age, water was my most favourite element. My parents say that I loved water so much that I’d spend more time than necessary washing things. I found it’s fluidity and the magical look of it very intriguing.
Growing up in Ethiopia, my homeland, which unfortunately is a land-locked country, we didn’t have the luxury of enjoying the ocean unless we traveled to other countries. My father re-calls a holiday in Senegal when I ran into the ocean as if I was a first-class swimmer, but I was merely a beginner. He says he was so nervous for me, but that day, he saw my determination and bravery.
As I became older, I was pulled towards cities by the ocean. Nowadays, I live in Australia and work as a photographer. It’s no surprise that this huge island is a dream location for a creative like me. In my first NFT collection titled Chasing Waves, I pay homage to water via images of coastal scenes captured over 5 years. With animation, I’ve created motion within each image.
The collection comprises 12 x 1/1 images with motion. Trading begins on December 6.
