Leroy Grannis: Surf Photography
Edited by Jim HeimannISBN: 978-3-8228-4859-3;
Формат: 320х265 мм
Surfing began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s, where it transformed from a sport to a way of life, admired and exported across the globe. One of the key image-makers from that period is LeRoy Grannis, a surfer since 1931, who began photographing the scene in California and Hawaii in the longboard era of the early 1960s. This collection, drawn from Grannis's personal archives, showcases an impressive selection of surf photographs - from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu's famed North Shore. Equally notable is his work covering an emerging surf lifestyle, from "surfer stomps" and surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era - a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best.
