By CLARK LITTLE with JAMIE BRISICK
FOREWORD by KELLY SLATER
Award-winning wave photographer Clark Little shares his most remarkable photographs from inside waves, with a foreword by world surfing champion Kelly Slater. Published by Ten Speed Press (a Penguin Random House imprint), this is Clark's first book to be released across the US and all over the world.
Surfer and photographer Clark Little creates deceptively peaceful pictures of waves by placing himself under the deadly lip as it is about to hit the sand. "Clark's view" is a rare and dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out. Thanks to his uncanny ability to get the perfect shot—and live to share it—Little has garnered a devout audience, been the subject of award-winning documentaries, and become one of the world's most recognizable wave photographers.
Clark Little: The Art of Waves compiles over 150 of his images, including crystalline breaking waves, the diverse marine life of Hawaii, and mind-blowing aerial photography. This collection features his most beloved pictures, as well as work that has never been published in book form, with Little's stories and insights throughout. Many of the photos are from the North Shore of Oahu, with additional pictures from the outer Hawaiian Islands (Maui, Kauai and Big Island), California (Newport, Laguna and Malibu), French Polynesia, Tonga, and the Galapagos Islands. Journalist Jamie Brisick contributes essays on how Clark gets the shot, how waves are created, swimming with sharks, and more.
With a foreword by eleven-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater and an afterword by the author on his photographic practice and technique, Clark Little: The Art of Waves offers a rare view of the wave for us to enjoy from the safety of land.
