About the collection
Captured in Australia from 2015 – 2020, Chasing Waves created by me, Liyat G Haile, is a Non-Fungible Token ( NFT ) collection of 12 original photographs inspired by my love of water. The images come to life through animation of certain parts such as the ocean water and the clouds in the sky.
From a very young age, water was my 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 land-locked, 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 nervous for me, but that day, he saw my determination & bravery.
As I became older, I was pulled towards cities by the ocean. I found that the ocean healed me and I loved capturing it. Nowadays, I live in Australia & work as a photographer, which gives me access to so many coastal areas such as the gorgeous ones included in Chasing Waves.
