when i was younger, summer was all about going to the pool club! riding my bike there and back, swimming, diving, eating hamburgers and fries, playing marco polo, idolizing the the lifeguards! i loved summertime!
this feeling, mood, lifestyle, this time we call summertime, is perfectly depicted in matt albiani’s photography! the sun, the sand, the tans lines, the lifeguards bigger than life- it takes me back, i still love summertime!
i love the all-american sensibility of matt’s photography- the light, the pop of red, the shadows, the blue sky, the wind, the bluer water- brings back all the great summer times! east coast, west coast, any coast- enjoy the signs of summertime!
