In the artist's own words: “This photo was taken on an island in Venice famous for glassmaking. Outside of a glass factory was a beach made completely of discarded glass smoothed by the water. I thought this was so beautiful because of how colorful and unique it was, and how even the edges of the island represented the artistic passion within its boundaries.”
