Getting it Just Right

BY DAVID KERNICK
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 26, 2014

As a local surf life-saver and regular ski-paddler, David Kernick has spent many years on the beautiful local waterways or surfing the beaches. His view of the local area comes from a different perspective to most as he regularly paddles in the late afternoon light and has seen many spectacular sunsets. This passion for water and low light is reflected in much of his photographic work and he enjoys the peacefulness and serenity of shooting nature, water, and landscapes. David also loves the social interaction of portrait photography and watching his subjects develop in confidence, capturing their personalities and in particular seeing the smile on their faces when they see the final product.

Nostrum Collective

BY NOSTRUM COLLECTIVE
@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Nostrum Collective is a photographic project to show the relationship between a group of friends formed on the sea for surfing and the Sea through our photo shoot. Every kind of relationship with the sea is accepted, whether it be surfing, swimming, fishing or diving- or simply looking into that magical blue water. Nostrum Collective would like to be a high quality photographic diary with a very deep Ligurian and Mediterranean identity to share with all people who love the sea and the many beautiful moments it gives to us.

Time and Tide

BY JO ATHERTON
@ VOL 7 ON SEP 27, 2016

Artist Jo Atherton highlights the diversity of plastic objects washing ashore on the British coastline, and how the ubiquity of this material enables us to reinterpret stories of our time. Millions of years ago, fuelled by sunlight, marine plankton flourished and then settled on the ocean floor, slowly transforming into oil. This same oil is used to produce the endless plastic objects that dominate our everyday lives. When inked and printed, plastic flotsam fragments bear a stark resemblance to the rich diversity of microscopic marine life - a worrying and ironic connection to a beautiful natural process.
