It's been a while since I last looked at the work of surfer and surf photographer, Leroy Grannis
and it's never disappointing, especially 'The Legends: Classic 60's black and white photo collection
'. They have that lovely grainy, vintage look and even in mono they radiate that warm, hazy days of summer feeling. As does the '60's legend board builders' collection which gives a great insight into the business end of 60's surf culture.
Grannis began surfing in 1931 and started photographing surfers and surf culture in the early 60's and has some great collections through the 60's and 70's in black and white and colour.
Limited edition photographic prints are available to buy here
. Be warned though, they are not cheap and you will fall in love with them and just have to have one.Images via Photosgrannis.
