JON FRANK – THE GLIDE
10 years ago, when my love of surfing combined with a growing passion for photography, I would scour the pages of every surfing mag available – indeed, soaking up everything and anything surfing that I could, there was one photographer who stood out for me. It wasn’t sensational, cover imagery or gaudy surf advertisements but rather a poetry in Jon Frank’s images that appealed to my sense of what surfing was. His work still speaks to me in this way more than most.
In a recent collaboration with Richard Tognetti and The Australian Chamber Orchestra, Frank’s imagery (both moving and still) was combined with a live performance by the orchestra in a performance that brought together an eclectic audience for a unique and at times breath-taking show.
