We went over to eat at the Bear Flag restaurant in the Pacific City mall in Huntington Beach early this month and I came across Ron Church’s surf photographs in the Pacific City Gallery space. I know I have seen his work before but never in an exhibition format. Ron was a pioneer in photographing surfing and underwater, but unfortunately he passed away from a brain tumor at only 39 years old in 1973. His images are fantastic documents of the iconic “Endless Days of Summer” era of the Southern California beach scene. I don’t know how long this work will be up but if you are in HB at Pacific City make a point to see it. There are also several catalogs of his work out which look very interesting, worth getting to his work.
