The New York surfing community is made of good people and creative spirits. Alberto Guglielmi is a New York photographer and surfer. In his Surfer DNA Portrait Series, 39 creatives came together to support his art project and cause. They included actors, designers, photographers, filmmakers, and chefs. In the portraits the fin became an extension of the subject's body showcasing the surfer's "connection to the water, both physically and spiritually," Guglielmi explains.

On June 5th, 2013 I had the pleasure to photograph the Surfer DNA Art Opening at the SoHotel ArtSpace Gallery in New York City. It was a brilliant evening of art, community and social cause.
