Above/Below by Trent Mitchell

Trent Mitchell is one of our all-time favourite photographers, surf or none. When his photos hit paper and are bound into one beautiful hardcover book, it's like everything you love about the ocean caught in time for your coffee table. Above/Below is his second book, and a worthy follow up to the brilliant and award winning Chasing The Curve.

I had to come home to Sydney to look after my mum. She had an accident. I took these pictures first light every day for 3 days in the early hrs before she woke.
