Heather Tiddens by Eliot Crowley

Professional photographer and former Brooks Institute faculty member Eliot Crowley has a show of portrait photography now hanging at the Lucky Llama coffee house titled, “Surfers of Santa Barbara.” The artist stated that he embarked on the project with a long-term vision in mind: “You start where you are,” Crowley said, “and use what you have.” He began with his old friend and well-known Rincon surfer Don Campbell, who, like the rest of the subjects in his 50-portrait show, then referred him to another Santa Barbara area surfer. Local wave riders will recognize the regulars from the line up at Rincon, and the photography show coincides not only with the surf season, but also the Rincon Classic waiting period and the Rincon-focused art show kicking off at the Carpinteria Arts Center on Saturday, Jan. 18.
