The dark photography of Laurence Demaison

Photography // Monday, October 05, 2015
At first glance and considering where photography’s technology is currently at, it would be fair to assume that the surreal images of photographer Laurence Demaison were digitally manipulated, however that’s just not the reality.

Slow is Fast book

Photography // Thursday, October 01, 2015
In September 2012, professional surfer Dan Malloy and two other friends decided to explore the California Coast by bike, strapping surfboards to racks and heading south with no specific destinations in mind. Speaking to Huck Magazine Malloy said, “We were on the road for two months in total, we weren’t cycling everyday though, we were just going to places and seeing what happened. We’d stop and surf if we saw a spot that looked good, we were totally self-sufficient so there was no timetable to be places. I’d say that of the places we stayed, about half were planned and half weren’t.“
