'Taj. By Respondek' is part two in a series of independent photography essays.

A Coffee Table Surf Book.


During my charmed existence as a surf photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with a whole bunch of professional surfers. Over the years, I have become great friends with a few, such as Taj Burrow, Dion Agius, Craig Anderson and pals. 

These days I work and travel with these guys almost exclusively. In turn, my photo library of them is extensive, and although we have experienced a bunch of published success, in editorial exposure and advertising campaigns, there’s still so much imagery that deserves a chance to shine. It’s great to have the opportunity to catalogue these into a complete and tangible art piece for people to enjoy. 

This 120-page Taj Burrow book consists of high-impact moments featuring the energetic style and hi-fi flare of the surfer, bound together in minty fresh colour.
