SURFLAND

Jodi Sternbach's monograph, SurfLand, captures contemporary surfers in their element with the use of the tintype photographic method. This wet plate collodian process has changed very little since its invention in the 1850s and lends this series a timeless, anthropological sensibility. Sternbach has been shooting on the coast of California and on the shores of Montauk since 2006, capturing these often stone-faced adventurers in their natural elements. Sternbach's efforts culminated in the (now out of print) 2009 release of her book, SurfLand.
