there is not, it has to be said, a whole lot of figurative photography on here. not because i don't like it but, mainly, there's just the same old thing over and over again. so i was really taken by joni sternbach's surfer pictures. not just because of the process but because these look like real people in an environment i'm familiar with. their boards are scuzzy with wax, their faces have been out in the sun too long (okay this last i can only imagine - in scotland it's windburn and cold!) and i can practically smell the feeling of salt in their hair. real people. all ages. love this!
