Life is a fatal adventure.
It can only have one end.
So why not make it as far-ranging
and free as possible.

// Daniela Garreton’s latest collab //
Sep 28, 2013

Daniela Garreton + surfboard + Posca pens = Pure Radness! We were stoked when one of our fave sea-inspired artists, Daniela Garreton, sent us some pics of her latest collaboration with Rip Curl and Posca, which resulted in the salt-encrusted Viking Seagull staring back at you. True to Daniela’s style, the design reflects her penchant for maritime nostalgia, brooding characters and beards aplenty. Be sure to stay posted with Daniela’s work here.

// Rite of Water – Kristianne Koch //
Aug 21, 2013

The water is one of the few places where we can learn to be both fragile and capable in the same moment.  When my son was four he started surfing and we began a tradition of living on our boat. It was then that I found myself in the water continually. I was inspired to photograph my children immersing themselves in the the same waters I grew up in. I have come to realize that they are experiencing an initiation ceremony each time they enter the ocean just as I did when I was their age.

There are three stages of a traditional rite of passage. For the initiation process in the ocean they are: the time of separation from the safety of the shore, the transition phase of fear and vulnerability that is ambiguous and the reincorporation back into a unique community of experienced ocean-goers.

Spending this time in the water is a significant event in our family. This socialization prepares us all for a future being confident in ourselves and feeling a part of a very unique and special community.

I bear witness to them learning to be vulnerable, courageous and free-spirited. Using a storytelling style similar to Duane Michals’ and Ed Kashi’s book ‘Three,’ I create triptychs to tell the story of individual passages each time my children enter into the ‘Rite of Water.’   These will eventually be installations with the images printed on glass standing up in a triangle around each other.

// Jonah //
Jul 26, 2013

If you have a spare twenty minutes or so, do yourself a favour and WATCH THIS!!! An amazing short film “Jonah” is a beautiful tale about Mbwana and his best friend Juma are two young men with big dreams. These dreams become reality when they photograph a gigantic fish leaping out of the sea and their small town blossoms into a tourist hot-spot as a result. But for Mbwana, the reality isn’t what he dreamed – and when he meets the fish again, both of them forgotten, ruined and old, he decides only one of them can survive. Jonah is a big fish story about the old and the new, and the links and the distances between them. A visual feast, shot though with humour and warmth, it tells an old story in a completely new way.
