Thomas Campbell | Slide your brains out


December 20, 2012 | Words By:

Here’s the video Recap of the TC’s exclusive exhibition in Biarritz, France.


‘Um, I make stuff.” That’s how Thomas Campbell describes himself. To clear things up a bit: Thomas Campbell is an accomplished painter, sculpture, photographer, filmmaker -and Element Emerald advocate. Because of the later, he was brought to Biarritz France in November to launch his newest book edition ‘Slide Your Brains Out’ – the first volume in a series of surf photography books – in Europe. The brand joined forces with Desillusion and invited the creme de la creme of art, surf and skate lovers to come over, wander by, stroll in, walk through, start a squat and party on at a small exhibition of some of the 15 years worth of images found in the book. It all turned out more than ‘coolish’, as Campbell himself would say. We agree.
