Masters of Surf Photography: Warren Bolster

Warren Bolster began surf photography in early 1970s California, and is still active from his home base in Honolulu, Hawaii. From shooting the underground Newbreak crew at Sunset Cliffs in the early 70s, and covering the mid-70s skateboard revolution as editor of Skateboarder magazine, to his recent split-level images that examine dual realities by peering above and beneath the ocean surface simultaneously, to technically amazing speed-blurrs that via freeze motion deliver the sensation of the wave dance, to stomach fluttering aerial vistas of outer reef cloud breaks, and his camera board perspectives that look out from behind the surfer buried deep in the curl, Warren’s photography confronts the viewer with a dazzling array of intense visual portrayals of the surfing experience.
