Images to Help the Sea
At 22 years old, Benjamin Thouard, passionate about the sea and photography, decided to set down his cameras in Tahiti. The famous Teahupo’o wave quickly became his favorite spot and water shots became his specialty as far as all water gliding sports. For more than 7 years, Thuard has explored and shot the waves of Tahiti and her islands. He has turned a project into an endless quest. He patiently waits for ideal wave conditions and good light while waiting for perfect moments. This allows him to immortalize the shapes that the ocean creates for mere seconds.
