Client: Gray Malin
If you have ever seen classic surf film The Endless Summer you know about the pursuit of perfection: chasing waves and summer weather around the globe. Photographer Gray Malin knows of this global pursuit, but not just for riding waves. Rather, his search is to capture water-worshipers of all types through his camera lens from high above, from the vantage point of a helicopter, that is!
Gray’s A La Plage series of photos are beachscapes shot from the air above beach and resort destinations on six continents including St. Tropez, Hawaii, San Francisco, Dubai, Lisbon, Cancun, South Africa, Miami, Sydney, Rio and the Caribbean. All capture the spirit of summer while still conveying a distinct sense of place.
Through a collaboration with UK-based swimwear purveyor Orlebar Brown, Gray’s photos have made the leap from your walls to your wardrobe.
This post from Gray’s blog describes how the collection came together, ultimately leading to these three styles of the classic Bulldog silhouette.
