Banks Artist Journal: The Photos of Ryan Tatar

Along with providing us with some amazing imagery, we asked Tatar to curate a playlist,
a sort of soundtrack to the below images.
Highly recommend pressing play before scrolling down.

Tatar is an American photographer whose subject matter is influenced by his love for the open road and the Californian coast. His film photos have been showcased around the world for their embodiment of the laid back surf culture he lives and breathes.

We chose Ryan Tatar for our most recent Artist Journal Series, a creative outlet we put together once a season with friends outside the clothing realm, enabling them to showcase their work on a different canvas than what they're used to.
