Surreal Photographs Capture Surfing In New York City Streets

Surreal Photographs Capture Surfing In New York City Streets

Romain Laurent's photography series gives a nod to the central surfing values that espouse defying convention and hitting the beach anywhere and everywhere.

Surfing has long been associated with 1960s and 70s counterculture, as a post-war generation emerged, refusing to conform to societal norms. Photographer, Romain Laurent reignites that free spirit in his new series, L’Horizon; but, instead of hitting the beach, the surreal images reveal a tanned surfer smack dab in the middle of New York City. We love how the surfer appears to be paddling through the air as city  dwellers pass by completely unaware.
