Summerland: Will Adler



Opening July 1 at the Danziger Gallery is the perfect show for summer featuring the works of Will Adler. The 30 year old west coast photographer is known for his distinctive take on the surf world and has garnered a cult following in surfing and photography circles. Adler’s laid back, light infused images capture the spirit and atmosphere of surfing as much as the action of the sport.

The show has been curated by Will’s uncle, Tom Adler, art director and publisher known for his seminal books on early surf photography. His graphic artworks have also been exhibited at Danziger Gallery and we featured him earlier this year as well (California Surfing & Climbing in the Fifties).

Will Adler is showing pictures from Hawaii, California, and Montauk, shot for himself and magazines such as Juxtapoz, Neon, Surfer, WAX, and The New Yorker. His commercial clients have included Quiksilver, Patagonia, Nike, and Hixsept.
