While the act of surfing and the process of taking photographs vary greatly in the experience of physical sensations, I would argue that the acts do have a defining common point. Both pursuits require an attitude of bare attention and a high level of mindfulness. It is through this mental perspective that we truly open up to the continually changing qualities of our experiences, whether it be the ever changing dynamic experience of a wave-riding or the "seeing" of the subtle qualities of our visual landscape.
Why Lo-Fi and Analog Equipment?
The use of lo-fi photographic equipment is an incredibly freeing experience. The tools allow for spontaneity, impulsivity and happy accidents. The images produced can look ragged while maintaining a simplistic beauty, Moreover, the images seek to retain both post-modern and pictorialist qualities. Images from these lo-fi cameras attempt to resolve the rather large discrepancy that exists between the two artistic aesthetics.
