"Shooting the project entirely on film, Barash took the risk of waiting months for his film to be developed before piecing together the narrative. The results are stunning, appealing to lovers of the sport as well as those with little to no attachment to it. In a sense, "Talk Story" is more of a documentary bordering on ethnography than pure surf photography." -- From Cool Hunting's review of 'Talk Story'
Beyond the waves and beaches of Oahu's legendary North Shore, photographer Cole Barash takes us inside the life and times of surf prodigy John John Florence, and the people and places of this island he calls home. Shot entirely on film, Barash illuminates the private life of one of surfing's most famous athletes.
