By A Customer on 7 Nov. 1998
Format: Paperback
"Surfers" is a gritty and compelling photographic study of the sport and lifestyle of surfing. In 100 duotone and 11 four-color photos, Patrick Cariou captures surfers of many ages, races, nationalities. Indeed, he traveled the globe for these pictures. Whether in Long Island or Easter Island, Peru or Polynesia, the photographer searched for the world's greatest surfers and surf-legends. Cariou is especially talented at shooting natural-light portraits of these men and women. There's a relaxed naturalness about his subjects, which is a testament to the trust he gained from them. Also, Cariou, in his best shots (e.g., "Buttons Kaluhiokalani, North Shore," "Local, Biarritz," and "Laird Hamilton, Maui"), captures the surfers' eyes so effectively that they speak volumes about these wave-riders. Also, Cariou's images are refreshingly unromatic. There is an earthy, every-day quality to these pictures. I only wish the photos had been done in full color. Not only would the reproductions have been clearer, but the pictures' impact would have been far greater than they are. Still, surfers of all ranks will enjoy this book.
