PhotoLyfe: Tom Carey

Welcome to PhotoLyfe, in which Stab's favourite photographers answer questions about themselves with their own images. It's that old picture-tells-a-thousand-words chestnut but with more colour and pop. It's a way to cut out all the bullshit. It's like jacking into the main vein of those who supply us with exquisite surf imagery every day. Give thanks by studying each image with a more careful eye than usual!

And, there really ain't a better place to start than Mr Thomas Carey. The Californian spends his time swirling through the dreamier parts of the world like Mexico, Nicaragua, Samoa, Indonesia and Hawaii, punching his arm through perfect walls at the perfect time and flooding Stab's inbox with dispatches to induce extreme envy and wow. Of particular note below is the Craig Anderson moment from Greenbush. That, and the rest, is just inherently Mr Carey. Stab assures you'll enjoy his view of the world as much as we.
