Best Best Vicarious Salt Spray in Your Face

The dramatic angles in many of the nautical photographs of Onne van der Wal might remind you of the Biff! Bam! Pow! graphic excitement of action comics. A bird’s-eye view of a sailboat has two slashing diagonals meet at a prow far below. Close-packed sails at a regatta starting line bob amid swells you’d think would swamp them. Van der Wal knows what he’s looking at. A professional sailor 25 years ago, he crewed with the victorious 1981-82 Dutch Whitbread Around-the-World Race Team. The photographs he took on that adventure were the start of his creative career, and some of them are still published today. His online store offers limited-edition prints, calendars, and Wind and Water , his coffee table book collection of photographs. 1 Bannister Wharf, Newport | 401.849.5556 |
