Art Brewer Retrospective

If you know anything about the history of the photography of surfing, you know a little more than the average joe.  If you know anything about Art Brewer's odd prowess in that art form, you aren't claiming too much more.  I only say that since Brewer is a surf photographer of such rightful repute you couldn't be mining the depths by figuring his schtick out.  No, he's one of the first you stumble over. And one of the most affecting.  The upcoming exhibition of his work will no doubt be required viewing.  As Ty Breuer puts it "If you are a photographer, aspiring photographer, Instagramer, or give a damn about surf culture and you live in NYC, you should go to this.... The Art Brewer Retrospective"

And that's about it.

(Here's a glimpse at the last time we saw him here.)
