Ocean Culture by Luke Paige

A black and white shot of a surfer riding a wave in the Ocean Culture series by Luke Paige.

A surfer, his board and the ocean have a very special connection that no one else will ever really understand. The sport that began with the ancient Polynesians and gained popularity in the 1950s and 60s has become a strong culture, community, and almost a religion for those involved.

Slovenia-based photographer Luke Paige explores just this, in his series Ocean Culture shot in Hossegor, France. Featuring silhouettes of a body in the ocean, on the beach or mid-wave, these black and white images evoke a sense of mystery and intimacy between man and ocean.
