I currently have a show on at Deus Gallery in Bali. This is the story and the images that are hanging in the show.It was so hard to choose which ones would actually hang in the gallery. Please also go to this link to see all the other amazing women I shot. I will do another post with more of the single fin ladies.
The prints come in a limited edition of 9 and are available framed and unframed in various sizes shipped worldwide.
A Story of Single Fin Girls from Batu Bolong shot by Saskia Koerner
An exhibition celebrating the feminine spirit of women surfers whose lives are closely interwoven with their passion for surfing single fin boards.
This series of portraits is shot on a vintage Hasselblad analogue camera to truly capture the longstanding relationship women have with single fin surfing.
The camera takes a similar approach to capturing images as does the single fin to surfing. Both require precision and spot on technique, both resulting in beautiful posture and composition.
Single Fins are where we came from in surfing and the retro trend has brought a new wave of single fin riders. More women are gracing the line-ups than ever before and are tuning into the single fin movement.
The elegance of the female form combined with the single fin surfboard results in a graceful dance on the water that is truly quite mesmerizing.
Here in Bali, I have met an entire tribe of single fin female surfers and we see each other every sunrise in the water. With this portrait series, I want to express the beauty and elegance of these dancers in the sea.
