By Bryce Thomas

Wake, is a really interesting pictorial project. It takes a lot of gumption to self-publish an art book, and Bryce Thomas has started with a really challenging angle.

The concept of the book stemmed from a few simple portraits of surfers taken during the winter months of 2015. Bryce has sought to explore the physicality, post surf, of a diverse range of people whose only commonality is a willingness to brave the chilly early morning waves. 

The result, a vignetted visual compendium of the Bondi surfer.

Visit the Wake kickstarter project if you'd like to support Bryce. Time is ticking and he has some way to go, but best of luck!
