Required Reading: Slide Your Brains Out
Thomas Campbell cuts against the grain of traditional sports photography. His artistic focus ignores the extremely focused and detailed images so common in mainstream surf shots. Intead, you'll find extreme color saturation, blurring and perfectly framed compositions. 15 years of surf stars are chronicled in this signature style in Campbell's new book, Slide Your Brains Out: Surfing in General 1997-2002.
