Gallery Opening: Clark Little Surf Photography
What a better way to exit the winter-blues and start thinking about summer than with a Clark Little surf photography show. We are very fortunate to have Clark Little back at evo for a second time and are looking forward to dreaming about tropical waves. Clark hangs out in the danger-zone part of a breaking wave to get amazing shots from unique angles that you’d only see if you were about to get pummeled.
April 1st 2011 6-9pm in the evo Timesinfinity Gallery.
About Clark Little:
Clark Little was born in Napa, California in 1968. Two years later, a move to the North Shore of Oahu (Hawaii) dramatically changed his future. In the 80’s and 90’s he made his name as a pioneer of surfing at the Waimea Bay shorebreak. Clark had a unique talent for taking off on hopeless closeout shorebreak waves and surviving in one piece.
In 2007, he discovered his ability and passion to capture the extraordinary beauty of the shorebreak when his wife asked him for a picture of the ocean to decorate a bedroom wall. With the confidence of an experienced surfer, Clark jumped in the ocean, and started snapping away, recording the beauty and power of Hawaiian waves. “Clark’s view” is a unique and often dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out, captured in photos for all to enjoy from the safety of dry land.
Clark has gained national and international recognition for his North Shore shorebreak wave photography with appearances on television shows Good Morning America, Inside Edition, The Today Show, and featured in publications such as National Geographic, Paris Match, Sierra Magazine, Nikon World, Rangefinder, Surfer’s Journal to name a few.
This year, Clark was awarded the 2010 Oceans Photography Award by Nature’s Best Photography: Windland Smith Rice International Awards. The award winning photographs will be exhibited at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC from April to September 2011.
The shorebreak is my comfort zone. I absolutely love it. It’s always different. The light, the colors, the water, the sand and what happens to it. And to be there to capture it and share it with the world… what a dream.
