The Will Adler collection 'Dead Pan' is a wry and satirical comment on modern photography.

Based in Santa Barbara, Adler contributes to a number of surf-related publications. His work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. The 'Dead Pan' collection gets a lot of its charm from the laid back approach to technique. While some photos remain in crisp focus, others remain overexposed or left in shadow. The imperfections in rendering give the series a more realistic vibe. While many of his other collations feature landscapes, coastlines and surfers the 'Dead Pan' collection focuses on the bizarres compositions of reality. One particularly memorable shot is a of a found baseball hat sitting in grass, reading 'f**k everybody'.

The Will Adler collection 'Dead Pan' is a youthful perspective on the strangeness of reality.
