Synopsis

Akila Berjaoui's incredibly sensual photographs often feature sand, sun, water-or a combination of all three. In her first book, this highly sought-after fashion photographer, armed with her favorite old analogue cameras, takes us to breathtaking seaside locations, from her hometown of Sydney, Australia, to the bathing hotspots of Italy, France, and Brazil, to name just a few. Much in the tradition of Slim Arons, Bruce Weber, Peter Beard, Claude Nori, and Juergen Teller-all of whom she regards as influences on her work-Berjaoui's photos harken back to the 1950s, '60s, '70s, and '80s with their soft colors and sultry joie de vivre. As a woman, Berjaoui is able to draw out her female subjects with a sense of kinship, rather than voyeurism. One of the world's most in-demand photographers, Akila Berjaoui is destined to make a name for herself in the field of travel, beauty, and lifestyle photography.
