Clark Little Interview On The Time Machine
A pioneer of surfing at the Waimea Bay shorebreak on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Clark Little, was a recent guest on The Time Machine Radio Show to discuss the Peter King directed documentary "Shorebreak" of which Clark is the subject matter. The film was released this June around the country. The award winning photographer in 2007 discovered his ability and passion to capture the extraordinary beauty of the shorebreak when his wife wanted a picture of the ocean to decorate the bedroom wall. With the confidence of an experienced surfer, Clark went out and bought a waterproof camera setup, jumped in the ocean, and started snapping away, recording the beauty and power of Hawaiian waves. "Clark’s view" is a unique and often dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out, captured in photos for all to enjoy from the safety of dry land.
n a short time, Clark has gained worldwide recognition for his North Shore shorebreak wave photography with exhibitions in Japan, Canada, Brazil, Spain and throughout the US along with appearances on television shows including CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Inside Edition, Discovery Channel, ABC World News Now, France 2, NHK and Asahi TV programs in Japan.
Clark’s work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum, Alden B. Dow Museum, Science Museum of Virginia, Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona (Spain), Parco Logos Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), Gallery X (Tokyo, Japan), Heritage Maritime Canada (Montreal, Canada), The Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton Resorts, and published in National Geographic, New York Times, LIFE, Nikon World, Paris Match, Outdoor Japan, Sierra, Geo, Nature’s Best Photography, Rangefinder, Surfer’s Journal among others. Commercial clients include Apple, Nike, Nikon, Facebook, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Toyota, Anheuser Busch, Starbucks Coffee, Whole Foods Markets, Lockheed Martin, Verizon, and others. Clark Little awarded the Oceans Photography Award at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Washington DC (May 2011).
In November 2009, Clark published his 182-page debut art book, "The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little". In January 2011, Clark opened the Clark Little Gallery Haleiwa in his hometown of Haleiwa, Hawaii just down the road from many of the North Shore beaches featured in his photography. Then in February 2014, Clark published his second book "Shorebreak", a 160-page coffee table book featuring wave and ocean photography from the North Shore of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Big Island, California, Japan and French Polynesia. In 2014, Clark also published a book in Japan "Waves of North Shore" (Parco Publishing).
Now the brand new documentary film "Shorebreak" is amazing audiences around the nation and Clark shares his thoughts behind the artistic expression he's enjoyed over the years and what it was like working with film director Peter King on the documentary.
