Photographer: LeRoy Grannis

LeRoy Grannis is a California-based photographer famous for capturing Southern California's surf culture. During the '60s, Grannis' work was frequently published in Surfer, Reef, and Surfing Illustrated, and he is regarded as one of the sport's foremost documentarians.

In 1998, Grannis' work was the subject of Photo: Grannis, the first installment in The Surfer's Journal's monograph series dedicated to master surf photographers. In 2002, he was awarded SIMA's Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his surf photography.

Grannis' work is currently on display at the Huntington Library in This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in LA Photographs.
