There are many ways to interpret the word canvas. A wave can be a canvas for a surfboard, drawing constant lines through movement. A piece of ruled paper in the hands of an author can quickly become a pivotal moment in a story and a catalyst for the imagination. Together, Slowtide & Banks Journal have transformed the simple beach towel into an exclusive canvas for some of their favorite photographers to capture moments in time and share with you.
We recently followed one featured photographer, Nick LaVecchia, around his hometown in Maine to better understand his places for inspiration when he uses a camera in lieu of a paintbrush and a strip of film as a canvas.
