    About The Work

    Artspace and Monacelli are pleased to announce a new limited edition print by filmmaker and photographer David Ondaatje in celebration of the artist’s new monograph, Water Views: Rivers, Lakes, Oceans , published by Monacelli.

    Gaviota Swimmer captures the essence of Ondaatje’s artistic practice, offering a meditation on the power of solitude, the unspoiled beauty of the wilderness, and the unique marvel of coastal water patterns.

    “The California coast becomes progressively more wild as one moves north from Santa Barbara. Near Gaviota, the water is a beautiful dark shade of green with kelp forests just offshore. With the sun and my camera directly overhead, I could see deep into the emerald water below as a lone swimmer, fearless, swam parallel to shore.” — David Ondaatje

    Limited to only 25 signed and framed editions, the print is accompanied by a signed copy of Water Views , David Ondaatje’s breathtaking new survey of aerial photography. A portion of proceeds from the sale of every limited edition will be donated by the photographer to Human Rights Watch, an organization he has supported for many years, to support climate and environment initiatives.


    Water Views: Rivers, Lakes, Oceans is a breathtaking overview of the most striking bodies of water from around the world. Photographed with the latest drone technology by filmmaker David Ondaatje, these stunning aerial images celebrate the world’s waterways, shorelines, and their surrounding landscapes
