Inner Atlas - pt.1

Regarded as an art form, the sport of bodysurfing is one of the most primitive genres of wave riding known to man. Historically celebrated for performances above the water surface, I felt intrigued to explore the rider's interaction with ocean waves from the hidden perspective below.

What does it feel like moving at the perfect speed, intimately immersed within the dynamic flow of the sea? To connect with nature at this level? To ride the formless edge between fear and joy in a single breath?

I discovered a previously unrevealed physical and emotive space where man, movement and energy melt into a subconscious journey of self-discovery and inner harmony. This series is a study and celebration of the human spirit and the kinetic space in which one fleetingly expands and occupies.
