Backwash Journal Issue 3 - June 2018
Backwash is a glorious, chaotic ensemble of surfing how we see it. The core of Issue Three's 176 pages is The United Kingdom. This is the heart of Backwash, what is left behind when the wave recedes.
Backwash Issue Three is a surf anthology featuring the photography of John Respondek and Harry Mark, Ben Selway and Jack Johns. Hannah Stocks appeals to surfing, whilst Jon Frank discusses his youth and CJ Mirra talks whale communication with Chris Watson. Noah Lane writes about Brett Herring, illustrated by Josh Vyvyan.
Featuring Saskia Koerner and Craig Anderson, Leo Tolstoy and Chris McClean. Fergal confronts the topic of non violent communication and Guilia Frigieri writes to Easkey Britton. In the UK we encounter John Cooper Clarke, Easkey Britton, Jesse Davies, Lewis Arnold. Danny Wall, Mickey Smith, Jim Newitt and Mike Lay give their perspective. Alex Williams and Pete Gaell give their take. Ben Thouard's portfolio is splendid majesty. Curate is packed with Zarate, Gansicke, Rodriguez, Butler, Britta and we conclude with Michael Fordham on the realities of our time. Dedicated to the memory of Anton Hawkins. RIP
