October 2020

We love this new work from Sam, focusing on surfers he met recently in Sennen and Newquay. A few words about the project from Sam here:

There’s something about the sea. From spending a few days hanging around with surfers I see why they love it so much. The power and the strength of it is amazing. The noise and the feeling when swimming or surfing of being part of something just makes you want to keep going back. I wanted to document the surfers but also capture imagery that shows just how skilful it is to be able to ride on the waves. I was watching some of them surfing on Sennen beach and the weather changed from bright sunshine to thick cloud in under 5 minutes, and the light changed to this beautiful almost dusk colour blue but it was mid-afternoon.
