Whilst we are on the theme of surf photographers, it would be remiss of me not too also post about the amazing work of Jeff Divine
. Divine's images are mainly in colour and have a dynamic, fresh feel. His '70's Era
' images are like a colour continuation of the Leroy Grannis black and white, 60's collection, capturing the whole of surf culture - the fashions, the hairstyles, the boards and always the very cool cars.
Jeff Divine grew up in La Jolla and began taking pictures of fellow surfers in the 60's. In 1971 he joined Surfer magazine and in 1981 became their Photo Editor for the next 16 years!
Divine's prints are available to buy through M+B
in LA, but from the 21 July - 31 August his work will be exhibited/on sale at Crane and Kalman
in Brighton, and I for one cannot wait!
