Jack Noel Davis
After two unsuccessful back surgeries and almost a decade of chronic pain that separated me from surfing and skateboarding, as well as isolating me from my peers, I decided at twenty-three years old to purchase a camera and a waterhousing in an attempt to reconnect with the ocean and confront my physical limitations and pain.
This unknowingly provided me with a new passion that has superseded my love for surfing. I love being able to express how I feel in an image through the timeless nature of the ocean. While I still must manage my limitations within the ocean, it has given me back my confidence and provided me with more joy than I can express.
A camera and the ocean. This makes me happy.
