To accompany the launch of Thomas Campbell’s latest project ‘Slide Your Brains Out’, the first volume in a series of surf photography books, the alternative surf craft advocate chose to hold a one night photo exhibit and book signing this November in Biarritz, home to la Côte des Basques and much of Europe’s logging scene. If you missed it, it went a little like this.
‘Um, I make stuff.’ That’s how Thomas Campbell describes himself. To clear things up a bit: Thomas Campbell is an accomplished painter, sculpture, photographer, filmmaker and Element Emerald advocate. Because of the later, he was brought to Biarritz France in November to launch his newest book edition ‘Slide Your Brains Out’ – the first volume in a series of surf photography books – in Europe. The brand joined forces with Desillusion and invited the creme de la creme of art, surf and skate lovers to come over, wander by, stroll in, walk through, start a squat and party on at a small exhibition of some of the 15 years worth of images found in the book. It all turned out more than ‘coolish’, as Campbell himself would say. We agree. But see for yourself below in the video.
