Dion Agius' series of portraits are thick with youthful rebellion and fun-loving attitude. The subjects are grungy friends in dazed-out scenes. The viewer can imagine context easily through the composition. Every photo feels young, wild and care-free. The wave rider describes his career on his site, "A professional surfer by trade with a few spare cameras and too much spare time." His lack of seriousness gives his work a refreshing edge- effortless. The dude isn't trying to trying to be cool. The man is cool. The simple longing for self-expression can be felt through his work. It's genuine.
Using a Pentax Pino 35, Dion Agius photography curation is free-loading and ready to run.
