wait, is that....



linda benson? IT SURE IS!

i am so stoked she is willing to be a part of my project. her contribution to surfing is incredible, both athletically and culturally; she has truly helped take the women's side of the sport in new directions. click here to learn more about linda's history. more images and a written piece will be posted soon. thank you linda!

you are so lucky to have all these awesome surfers let you make portraits of them. i like the background in the 2nd one alot, i like her gaze in the first one, she is sort of not looking at you, which i like.

really like the second one. the zen like combo of the background, her hands in a prayer position, barefoot. it's very peaceful

What an honor, mi hija! Such a personal view of her. I'm happy you've met her. Love the peace and spirituality she exudes in the second and third picture. I feel like I'm right there with her. Thanks!
