North Shore Surfing by Ed Freeman

Ed Freeman worked for twenty-five years as a musician, composer, and record producer before taking up photography full-time. Ed's controversial position regarding image manipulation is that what he is producing is not journalism but fine art – pictures that are to be appreciated for their intrinsic esthetic value rather than for their accuracy in depicting an actual event or place in time.

Obliterating any possibility of being described as a surf photographer, Ed Freeman's art is a powerful evocation of concepts of man against nature as well as man's place in the universe. The violence of the ocean he captures is both frightening and thrilling.
