Two surfers stand at the ready, gazing out toward the breaking waves. This is a print of the original photograph by Tom Kelley, reproduced in brilliant color on fine-art paper. The work is set in a classic white frame.
From his signature advertising imagery to his iconic nudes of Marilyn Monroe, Tom Kelley’s work blends the artistry of classic photography with the precision of impeccable graphic design. Known for his ability to establish a rapport with each subject he photographed, Kelley found ways of expressing sides of his subjects rarely seen by the public. Through his colorful and carefully constructed imagery, Kelly used each subject to tell a unique story, from the Studebaker Lark Wagon to notable personalities such as Greta Garbo, Clark Cable, Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
