Ether Monthly #13-Portrait Of The Artist As A Youngish Ripper

Kidman in front of the lens.

Definitely one of the reasons I like the photographers I like is the degree of involvement they have. This is not to say you have to be a great surfer or skater to take good surf or skate photos, but someone like Kidman's immersion in this whole wonderful foolish pastime is so visible in his work. It's what makes us look at a photo and feel you're living it. If you're in SoCal this weekend you can see moving pictures of him too- Patrick Trefz is screening his film Idiosyncrasies this Friday at the Coast Cinema in Laguna Beach, 7pm, with an after screening event at the Surf Gallery.
