Shaun Smith | Ocean Waves

Shaun Smith is a playful water photographer who sees the bright side in the smallest things in life.
Like many surfers before him, Shaun started bringing a camera in the water to shoot his friends and document his own rides, as a way to relive the fun.
Growing up on the coast of California, Shaun started swimming age two, took to bodyboarding at seven and hasn’t stopped since.
"I love the feeling of getting barreled. There's really nothing else like it".

Starting at the Wedge and staring down barrels, Shaun found his style in the mini-waves movement, capturing in ripples the universal beauty of undulating water.
Shaun Smith is obsessed with listening to the call of the ocean, using the lens to record the mood of the sea, the dance of the waves in the wind, like the lonely but not lonely soul of the sea.

Alfred Eberling (1872-1951)

Alfred Rudolfovich Eberling, was a successful painter and photographer in the early 20th century.
A pupil of Ilya Repin, he never deviated from realism (in the broad sense of the word) and left a number of striking works executed in the painterly two-dimensional manner typical of that time.
Eberling’s portraits, entirely in the spirit of salon art in terms of imagery and not devoid of a chocolate-box prettiness, were always marked by refined, often unexpected combinations of colors.

Man Ray (1890-1976) | Quotes / Aforismi

  • "An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human".
  • "Is photography an art? There is no point in trying to find out if it is an art. Art is old-fashioned. We need something else".
  • "Non ha senso continuare a chiedersi se la fotografia sia o meno una forma d'arte, perché l'arte è fuori moda e noi abbiamo bisogno di altro".
