Others investigate moments of extreme power, creation and rebirth on a molecular scale or on a scale comparable to that of the universe. Questioning our relationships, place and role within the universe, environment and natural spaces.

Inspired by theories of the sublime written by Edmund Burke, the 'Oceanic Sublime' series aims to document the moments when nature displays great power and dominance. Giant waves, vast sea storms, and chaotic breaks can all lead to emotions similar to those of the sublime. Enjoying being within a sense of wonder and awe caused by an immense display of power and horror. The ocean has stimulated countless emotions over the centuries. Standing upon the shore with his camera, Lewis's 'Oceanic Sublime' photographic works were captured along the Cornish coast of South West England where the waves coming straight off the North Atlantic displayed their incredible might and power. “The passion caused by the great and the sublime in nature, when those causes operate most powerfully, is Astonishment; and astonishment is that state of the soul, in which all its motions are suspended, with some degree of horror” Edmund Burke, ‘A Philosophical Enquiry...’, 1757.
