These gorgeous surf photos I found over on Me Design Mag
are from a series called, 'SurfLand' by photographer Joni Sternbach.
"My pictures over recent years engage traditions of landscape, seascape, and architectural photography."
"I have concentrated on locations that are close to or directly on the water. At this juncture between land and sea, I explore subject matter in a constant state of transition. For the last year I have been drawn to the people present at these locations, specifically the surfers in Montauk's Ditch Plains, at the eastern end of Long Island."
When I originally saw the top one I thought it was a vintage print - it reminded me of John Severson's surf pics
from the 60's, so I was surprised when I realised they're modern prints but taken on a large format camera and produced using the classic tintype process (wet-plate collodion) which gives this lovely nostalgic feel.
