Waves: Pro Surfers and Their World (Hardback)

£26.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

A vibrant celebration of surfers in and out of the water from an award-winning photographer







Professional photographer Thom Gilbert spent four years among surfer

royalty at the top of their game-in Spain, New York, California, and

Hawaii-with his camera trained not only on tiny figures disappearing in

the waves, but also on the surfers' faces and bodies back on land. He

returned from the beaches with intimate portraits of the world's

best-from the newest talent to the oldest and most revered-and also with

dramatic action shots and revealing images of the culture around this

sport and lifestyle. The book features not only 300 photographs, but

some Q&As with, and hand-written contributions from, prominent

figures in the scene. Ultimately, Waves is an ode to surfing and to the men and women who live it every day.
