Sea Bites: The line between bravery and fear for a bite out of the sea.
A short documentary by David Beriain.
The wind roars. The sea crashes against the cliff. Two meters of rock, that is the strip of water and oxygen where the goose barnacle grows. Two meters where the sea shows no mercy, and beats with millenary strength. A line of waves and foam where Serxo and his comrades fight for a bite out of the sea.
A line between bravery and fear. Between recklessness and common sense. Two meters without margin of error. That is where the barnacles live. Where Serxo lives.
SEA BITES is the battle against the sea from some warriors that don't consider themselves heroes.
Photographer and professional skateboarder Ed Templeton uses his Leica M6 to capture images of skateboarding life. In this portrait, he gives us a clearer picture of his views on life, photography, Leicas, and the nature of his creative quest.

Except/Explanation from Freize magazine:
'A staccato collision of monadic pixels, antique statuary, modern-day men and women in woeful nylon togas and a soundtrack that feeds the score of a composition designed to be played on replica Roman instruments through a slightly outmoded synthesizer, the work is a deliberately unsuccessful, even grotesque, appropriation of Classical culture, which nevertheless points not only to other such appropriations in Western history and to the power structures they supported but also to the wild side of the ancient world that they so often suppressed or denied. Every replay of the past is fated to be flawed (even in the most scrupulous historical re-enactment group there’s always a roundhead in bifocals or a Cicero in socks) and perhaps says more about the time in which it occurs than the time it seeks to evoke. A moment built on fictions, and one that will be fictionalized in the years to come.'
