À la plage by Gray Malin
Can’t see a better way to celebrate the peak of summer (at least in my island) with this series of beach captures entitled “À la plage” by photographer Gray Malin. “Shooting from doorless helicopters, this series has been photographed around the world from the U.S. to Brazil to Australia. From above, a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form. These photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape—and summer bliss.”
“Gray Malin (born 1986), a Dallas native, graduated from Emerson College in Boston in 2007, majoring in photography and marketing. While he has had his work displayed in the Dallas Museum of Art, David Streets Gallery in Beverly Hills, and in the Julia Dean Gallery in Venice, he is currently working independently with online curators and art buyers. Merging his two passions, photography and marketing, Gray has taken a small Los Angeles flea market venture and created a successful fine art photography company offering his work across the country in just two short years. Since he started back in January of 2008, he has sold over 2,000 pieces across America, even internationally.” The “À la plage” collection is composed by 4 series taken in North America, Central and South America, Europe and Australia and are all available in Gray’s website.
