“Nature is my playground, and I have to deal with it,” says beach artist Jehan-Benjamin Tarain (@jbenart). “I work only at low tides when the fine, wet sand is very compact. The large-scale 30- to 100-meter pieces take between three to four hours to make, using simple tools like rakes and ropes, and remain for only a few hours before the wind or the sea come to erase them.”⁣ ⁣ Photo by @jbenart
