Anyone with a passion for surf culture and phototograhy is familiar with the name Tom Adler. Known for his publishing imprint, T.Adler Books, Adler is distinguished by the exquisite art books he publishes on surf, and recently, climbing photography. He has just launched a new venture, Archiv-E, an online print sale gallery, offering an intimate selection of sport and lifestyle photographs, many of which have been published in his books. Surfing, Climbing, Ocean, Western, and “Other Nice Photos” are a few of the categories featured, with vintage and contemporary images from such eminent niche sport photographers as Craig Stecyk, Don James, Ed Templeton, Glen Denny, Jeremy Koreski, Morgan Maassen, Ron Church and Thomas Campbell, among a curated group of about 40+ others. There are also photographs available from Adler’s newest book, An Uncommon Archive, a collection images on varying topics from such notable photographers as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Edward Curtis.
All prints on the site are open edition, museum quality fine art prints, available in a range of sizes, and offered framed in white, black or natural wood. They are not numbered, nor signed by the artist, but as such are very reasonably priced. Archiv-E offers a wonderful selection of art and photography, sure to appeal to both sport enthusiasts and photography lovers alike.
