US Photographic Magazine B&W features a photo of Turrimetta Beach on the cover of the August Special Edition.
The photo by local photographer, Gary Pullar, of Kirribilli, was one of over 8000 submitted annually to the magazine for publication.
The cover precedes an article and further images by Pullar in the September issue of the Magazine, which features images of the pool at Curl Curl and an article on the artist.
The magazine is sold in over 30 countries around the World.
Pullar, who photographs the beaches at their most transient moments, seeking to capture the energy and mystery of the sea, caught the interest of the Magazine's editors earlier this year.
Pullar, says in the interview for the magazine: "I have lived most of my life within minutes of the ocean, and my interest in photographing the coast is a natural extension of what is an essential part of me, Through my photography I am trying to capture the mystery, sensuality, power and unfettered purity of the ocean, and to connect through these images with the sea at a deeper emotional level.Through my images I am seeking to make an aesthetic and emotional connection with the viewer, by portraying something in a compelling and arresting way that they may be very familiar with but never really see. Executed well, fine photography has the ability to elevate the commonplace and the banal to something that extends our understanding of ourselves and our world. Pullar is planning exhibitions for later this year, has self published a limited edition book of photos of his former home at Point Lonsdale in Victoria, and has his images available through his website: Gary Pullar Photography
