The Most Beautiful Thing in the World Today: Surf Culture Captured

Artist Will Adler photographs waves and the brave souls who ride them

Artist Will Adler has a distinct talent for photographing surfers in action, from the slow build of anticipation as they paddle out to the athletic feats that occur when they catch a wave, while making his subjects appear positively graceful. Adler’s light-infused images are intended to capture the casual surf spirit, and riding colossal waves in a turbulent ocean has never looked so serene. 


If you didn’t catch Adler’s photography at the Danziger Gallery in New York City through the month of July, you can check out more of his work here. But be forewarned: you may feel the sudden urge to book an impromptu tropical vacation—potentially one that includes surf lessons.
