Some more of this idea of framing a singular object to give it a feel of space, almost using it as a center of attention for meditation or calm.

Zuma Beach Umbrellas

Posted in Beach Culture, Open Spaces, Photography by Keegan on August 22, 2012

I have been shooting a lot of film lately on a Canon 1N. This is a series of images I shot of umbrellas at Zuma Beach on one roll of Portra film. I have been increasingly interested in objects that exist individually, such as a single umbrella in the same. Also, it plays a similar roll to these collages I have been doing of circles above horizons, just in a slightly different manner.

During the summer months the lifeguards throw up the black ball flag and you cant surf past Noon, so with the weather being nice I burned the shit out of the bottom of my feet after getting called in by the lifeguards and I walked up the beach until the roll was finished. Click for  (more…)

Right At Dawn

Posted in Beach Culture, friends, Photography, published, Published Work, Surfing, Travel by Keegan on August 20, 2012

Almost a year ago, a good friend of mine had just finished writing his novel called “It’s Really A Story of The Weather,” a story of a young man, leaving behind his life in Los Angeles for the chase of big waves, adventure, love and solidarity deep into the heart of Mainland Mexico. I read the story, and instantly felt attached, personally as a surfer who has felt the need for big barrels, but more so, the yearn for adventure and finding the unknown.

After some discussion, we came up with an idea to visualize the story. We would work together in breaking down the novel and shoot a photographic interpretation of his book, allowing the words and photos to walk the audience through the story together as separate elements, each with their own power but with the same goal.

We are releasing the book in 21 chapters online, at  www.RightAtDawn.com each week a new chapter will be released and the story further told.

Please, check out the site, read along, check out our instagram where we are also posting a single photo and excerpt every morning, and let us know what you think.

Thank you
