On May 16th, I will be opening the doors to my first show, exhibiting a selection of images from a recent personal project the British Surfing Landscape. The exhibition will feature a selection images that document the surf spots of South West England.
British surfing has been rapidly expanding since the early 60's, with the South West being the UK's spiritual home. There, the small group of breaks around Croyde and Woolacombe alone attract more than 40,000 visitors a year, and inject more than £50m into the local economy annually; There are around 30 surf shops in Newquay alone.
Surfing photography is normally centred around the athlete and the wave, and consequently shot close up. What I have looked to achieve is including the wider context of a sport born out of the environment itself, and the majestic and unique British landscape in which it sits.
The exhibition is a joint collaboration with Another Country, a collective of designers selling unique contemporary craft furniture and accessories handmade in the UK and Europe.
