Dubbed as the “The godfather of surf photography” by The New York Times, Leroy Grannis made a profound impact on surfing culture with his classic photographs from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Having worked several odd jobs and even serving in the U.S Army Air Corps as a pilot flying lines of troops to combat, Grannis eventually found himself shooting surfing more than anything after a doctor’s suggestion to find a more serious hobby after being diagnosed with an ulcer.
