This short film by photographer and body boarder Mickey Smith is so stunning.
Smith said this about making the film:
"Originally I planned for the film to be more anonymous, rather than biographical, an all encompassing piece, to represent the photographers keeping the surfing machine afloat", explains Smith. "Something that offers insight into what it takes to grind out a living as a water-based photographer in the surfing industry: a short experimental glimpse at a life lived in the shadow of obsessive photographic pursuits."
The film was shot across the Atlantic coastline, around Ireland, Cornwall and Manchester.
(It was shot in Super 16mm film, as well as with the Canon 5D mk11 Digital SLR).
