ABOUT GRANT ROHLOFF (1935 to 1989)

Grant Rohloff was born in Hollywood, California in 1935 and started surfing in the early 50’s. Grant’s love of surfing and fascination with watching other surfers led him first to a brief apprenticeship with John Severson (Surfer Magazine founder/and surf filmmaker) and eventually to his own career as a still photographer and surf filmmaker.

Grant’s first project, titled appropriately “The Wonderful World Of Surfing” was released in 1960 and was followed by 12 other surf movies including the highly acclaimed “Men Who Ride Mountains”. “Grant was ahead of his time and way ahead of the pack back in the 60’s,” notes, C.R. Stecyk III (photographer, writer). The posters Grant used for promoting these movies were commonly the photos he had taken during actual filming sessions.

His films managed to capture not only the serious and great business of surfing, but also the humorous, real-life “off times” of the surfers. Rohloff always began his movies with a comic scene (in keeping to his mission for his work) – to inform and entertain. To him, film making and surfing were so much more than a vocation; they were a way of life.

ABOUT ANTHONY FRIEDKIN

We first discovered Tony from a 1978 issue of the local southern California esoteric magazine called WET. In the mag, there’s a brash interview with the then young L.A. native surfer and photographer called “Confrontational Bathing”. In it, Tony waxes on about his convictions about art, taking pictures, surfing, drugs, and women. Pure Southern California energy.

Since then, Tony has accomplished a significant amount of relevant work. His photographs are included in major museum collections including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum, along with numerous private collections. In 2008 he was included in a historical group show and coinciding book called, “This Side of Paradise” which examines the dynamic relationship between Los Angeles and the art of photography from the 1860s to the present.

Friedkin uses his camera as a means of personal discovery. His full frame black & white photographs explore the many mysteries of moments in time. He creates his own distinctive exhibition prints in his darkroom. He says of his work, “I believe in extraordinary photographs that draw you in and cannot be easily defined-celebrating perception and its many hidden layers of reality.”
