Description of book: Give Yourself to the Sea came from the idea of wanting to create something out of my fantasies about the beach. I shot it on an island called Menorca off the coast of Spain. The experience of making the book was my real-life fantasy, traveling to this island I had never been to before in search of the most amazing beaches. Whether it’s an actual physical beach or a paradise we create in our mind everyone needs to find their “beach”, a place where everything feels right and you feel like you’re floating. This book is about my search for that place.
The best thing about self-publishing: The only thing between you and putting your work out there is you.
