Jeff Divine at ARTBOOK @ Paper Chase, Los Angeles

On June 15th ARTBOOK @ Paper Chase hosted an evening with legendary surf photographer, Jeff Divine. In addition to hanging an assortment of awesome framed prints, Divine assembled a good old fashioned slide show, just as he used to do for his friends back in the 60s--in the basement of his grandmotherís house in La Jolla following a long day of surfing and shooting his fellow surfers. Friends and fans gathered for a true insiderís account of surfís halcyon days--the 1970s and 1980s--when surfing transformed from beach-town subculture into a popular and crowded sport drenched in fluorescence and neon.
