    Peter Hutton has spent nearly 40 years voyaging around the world, often by cargo ship, to create meditative, intimate, and luminously photographed film studies of place. At Sea (2007) depicts the life cycle of a container ship – from mechanized construction in Korean shipyards, to a journey across the Atlantic and ending with the manual labor of ship breakers in Bangladesh. The title of the film evokes a loss of perspective, a metaphor born from the experience of a sea journey and its ability to strip us of our sense of scale, time and distance––something that maritime artists have long sought to depict.
