Bernard Testemale // Big Wave Riders of Hawaii



Dedicated to the intriguing parallels that connect the histories of surfing and photography, this book showcases a selection of photographs taken by Bernard Testemale. This exceptional collection of portraits is captured solely on collodion plates, using a complex technique developed over 150 years ago. As a kind of rewind, the collodion plate returns to the roots of photography.


From indigenous village chiefs, to world-champion surfers and the world’s most iconic big wave-tacklers, a vast array of personalities are portrayed in Bernard Testemale’s collection. All of whom came together for the 30th anniversary of Quiksilver In Memory of Eddie Aikau event on the North Shore of Oahu.
