Growing up on the coast of Australia, the ocean had been a constant in the life of the photographer Luke Shadbolt. “I feel like, for anyone who has grown up with the ocean as their playground, there is an unspoken calling that takes place. It might be every day, or maybe once a month or even less, but eventually, you need to get back to the ocean to reset,” Luke explained in a recent interview.
The relationship with the ocean grew stronger during Luke’s teens, which he spent mostly surfing. As an art student at university, he fell in love with photography. Shooting the waves was the ultimate way to combine his two passions.
Luke’s exploration of the ocean resulted in some fascinating and powerful image, showcasing its vastness and multiple forms.
