The legendary war photographer Robert Capa famously said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” Clark Little shoots surf breaks, not Normandy invasions, but the principle still stands.
“There’s been a few times I have had to ditch my camera in lieu of breaking my neck, but I have learned to love getting worked over.”
Clark, the younger brother of big wave pioneer Brock Little has made a career of capturing images from the very pit of the barrel at some of the world’s scariest spots.
A new book, THE SHOREBREAK ART OF CLARK LITTLE (with forewords from friends Kelly Slater and Jack Johnson), gathers the man’s work in one place for the first time. The result is a whole new perspective (clarklittlephotography.com)
