Artful. Intrepid. Technically founded. Ron Church lifted surfing to a more sophisticated place. This five-image closed edition offers rare access to the Church Archive.

“Church turned his camera on surfing as it teetered on the verge of wave jocks, plastic surfboards, and manufactured surf wear, complete with its own media. Worse yet, the realization that the still-small surf culture was a commercially exploitable “lifestyle” was lurking just around the corner. He was there to capture its last moments of innocence.”
—Steve Pezman
