Thread Monthly #2- Jim Denevan

Jim Denevan LAnd Art, Big Sur.
from 'Thread' by Patrick Trefz, available from Foam and Function

Jim Denevan's outright incredible freeform beach art, definitely one of the moments that takes Thread (both book and film) beyond your basic surf imagery. Personally, I love these almost landscapey shots- the sense of place above and beyond a breaking wave is what makes this sort of work so fascinating to me. Fun fact time- aside from doing the above and riding a twinny really well, Denevan is an acclaimed chef and very much an early proponent of the whole local food/farm to table movement- he even got props from the A.A.A. in last months 'Westways' mag!
