Lluís Artús

La Platja (The Beach) is Spanish photographer Lluis Artus‘ bright and bold document of Barcelona beach culture. Formerly a professional deep-sea diver, Artus took up photography after a serious diving accident. Ironically, the accident occurred when Artus was building protecting breakwaters for the same beaches he would come to photograph in La Platja.

Artus documents a unique cast of characters in a style that teeters on the edge of commercial and personal work; that hard flash demanding our attention—not to mention highlighting the sun-baked skin of his subjects. La Platja feels like the ultimate beach party, one that almost seems too good to be real. Taken from Feature Shoot
