Deep in the Archives: Surf Photography Gems from the 70’s and 80’s
Aaron Chang is bringing back some of his most iconic images from the wild‐west days of surfing on the North Shore of Hawaii.
Aaron Chang Ocean Art Galleries and Culture Brewing Co announce an exhibition of photographs from the archives of surf photography legend, Aaron Chang. The show will feature iconic surfing photos spanning 4 decades. Some never before seen images will be unveiled in this unique show by award winning, master photographer, Aaron Chang.
“I was surprised and excited pulling photos for this show. Some of the images I had long assumed were lost I uncovered buried in the archives. It is remarkable to see a collection of so many epic moments and people in one group of images. I’m really looking forward to seeing this show up on the wall,” says Chang.
The show will be hung at Culture Brewing Co at 4845 Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach on July 3, 2015, and will remain on display for the month. On July 30th, a selection of Chang’s prints will be auctioned to benefit I Love a Clean San Diego at a fundraiser held also at Culture Brewing Co ‐ Ocean Beach. Local community advocates, like‐minded businesses, and fans of Chang will gather to raise awareness and exude their passion for our coastlines through giving back to I Love a Clean San Diego; Culture Brewing Co will donate portion of their proceeds from the evening’s event in addition to Chang’s selection of auctioned prints.
