Art Brewer, renowned as one of the world's premier surf photographers, has also had an extensive career outside the surf genre. While waves and surfers are his obvious metier, Brewer's genius lies not so much in documenting the manifest intensity and infinite palettes of wave riding, but in conveying the elusive soul of surfing - 'stoke' - to the legions of the Great Unwet. Over his career, Art has seen his work - much of it hand-decorated and enhanced - celebrated in gallery showings and mainstream publications as diverse as Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Esquire, and Playboy. Somehow Art manages to inject an overriding sense of poignancy and smartass fun into his portraits, bringing the beach esprit to the most landlocked denizens.
