A double-shot of surf cultureDPMag Published in Blog
Surf photography's always cool, but even cooler when it documents a bit of history and lost culture—as this collection of photography by surf legend LeRoy Grannis does. His photographs document the 1960s and 70s surf photography era of southern California. A neat collection both for the glimpse of a time gone by, and for the interesting surf and beach photography. Add to that an equally interesting historical Southern California surfer-esque series and you've got a double-shot of great surf-inspired images. These photos document the dawn of skateboarding, when a drought in Southern California in 1975 inspired young surfers to figure out a great use for dried up backyard swimming pools. That's how a whole new sport, and skate culture, was born. I'm struck by just how timeless so many of these images are.
