What began as an ordinary day spent at a flea market in Los Angeles transformed into a life-changing event for surf aficionado Doug Walker but also marked an important moment in surf culture. In 2007, the commercial film editor stumbled upon previously lost 30,000 negative film strips which documented the world of surfing of the 1970s. Frozen in time, the spirit of the sport was beautifully captured by talented counterculture photographers in raw and powerful images.

The 2011 Lost and Found movie featured the handful of photographers and well-known surfers appearing in the archive, but the journey was only beginning. After traveling the world, researching the stories further and adding more images to the collection, Walker created a large format coffee-table book that pays homage to the photographers and surfers, and introduces the artworks to the world. The 1970s beach culture is brought to life via stunning photographs that not only document the beloved sport, but tell human stories and capture candid moments in an honest way. The Lost and Found Collection Volume I is a must-have for those who are passionate about surfing or photography. The book documents the past through beautiful artworks, but more importantly, it acknowledges and celebrates icons. Both those behind and in front of the camera. Images courtesy of Doug Walker.
