Life's a beach in photographer Gray Malin's first book
Beaches be cray
Out on 10 May, you can pre-order Beaches, a collection of the photographer's works covering 20 cities across six continents
If photographer Gray Malin isn't on your radar yet, he very well should be. The Los Angeles-based fine art photographer has turned beach umbrellas into rainbow sprinkles and inner tubes into candied goodness with his stunning aerial photography. Now, he's releasing his first book titled Beaches — which, as the name suggests, amasses 125 of Malin's best holiday-themed shots.
Each flip of the page is a chance to enter escapism. If you've never been to the coastal fringes of Kaua'i, Rimini or Cape Town, you can now travel vicariously with a cocktail in one hand. Shot from helicopters, the aerial photographs depict changes in the ocean's currents, the gradient colours of sand and the bronze in bodies — just about everything you love in a tropical vacation.
