Benagil Caves are found in the southern folds of Portugal’s coastline. Created by over 20 million years of the pulsated waves from the Atlantic Ocean crashing against the limestone. The coastal area of Benagil is home to a series of convoluted caves, sea stacks and hidden beaches.
The coast of Bengal is made up of Miocene limestone sitting on much older rocks created in the Mesozoic era, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Some caves completely dark and submerged, others too small to enter. Eventually, caves like Benagil will entirely collapse to the Earth’s unending geological evolution continuing.
Focusing on form, texture and light I have documented the Benagil Caves from my perspective. Escaping the generic ‘snapshot’ of the millions of tourists visiting the caves from across the world.
