Surfer photography by Thomas Prior

Caitlin Sullivan Reader Find

By Caitlin Sullivan in New Photography on Tuesday 19 February 2013

Thomas Prior is not afraid of colour. Without being too heavily saturated or edited, his photos capture such strong hues that they seem almost more real than real life. Sunlight on surfers and even a torn 7UP can on pavement somehow become more interesting through his lens.
