ADVENTURES IN LIGHT + Ted Grambeau
surf photography book
How do you put more than 40 years of photography and stories into the pages of just one book?
I'm happy to say that with the help of some special and extremely creative friends and powered by Rip Curl, we have made the journey together and created a book that I'm proud to now share with you.
“Adventures in Light” showcases acclaimed photographer Ted Grambeau’s remarkable body of work on a visual journey spanning four decades of adventure travel.
Grambeau is much more than one of the world’s great surf photographers. “Adventures in Light” captures the spectacular diversity of his work, from perfect waves to high fashion, insightful portraiture to fine art, astute reportage to exotic travel.
Ted’s staggering body of work, which has graced magazine editorials and advertising campaigns for decades, is brought together here for the first time in over 240 pages of imagery to fuel the surf adventure urge in all of us. It is fair to say there is not a more widely-travelled, well-rounded, technically skilled and artistic photographer working in the realm of adventure travel and action sports in the world.
Ted’s personal philosophy neatly mirrors that of his long-time collaborator, surf company Rip Curl, captured in its ongoing campaign, The Search. Many of Ted’s iconic images are drawn from the rich archive of Rip Curl’s early Search trips to some of the most remote surf destinations on the planet.”
