Right At Dawn

Almost a year ago, a good friend of mine had just finished writing his novel called “It’s Really A Story of The Weather,” a story of a young man, leaving behind his life in Los Angeles for the chase of big waves, adventure, love and solidarity deep into the heart of Mainland Mexico. I read the story, and instantly felt attached, personally as a surfer who has felt the need for big barrels, but more so, the yearn for adventure and finding the unknown.

After some discussion, we came up with an idea to visualize the story. We would work together in breaking down the novel and shoot a photographic interpretation of his book, allowing the words and photos to walk the audience through the story together as separate elements, each with their own power but with the same goal.

We are releasing the book in 21 chapters online, at each week a new chapter will be released and the story further told.

Please, check out the site, read along, check out our instagram where we are also posting a single photo and excerpt every morning, and let us know what you think.

Thank you
