Nancy Breakstone

Nancy Breakstone is a local lifelong photographer whose passion has become shooting the natural art that the ocean leaves in the sand. She has been traveling to Costa Rica where she walks the dark beaches as the tide recedes, waiting for images to appear in the sand. As the seasons and tides change, so do the images in their complex and intricate composition.

Nature creates so many beautiful and exceptional images and she brings them life to those who never imagined that they existed through her photographic series which she calls “Impressions In The Sand”. Although her journey to photograph these images began 5 years ago, she didn’t make them available to the public until May of 2017 when she felt that she had a complete collection of her work.
