Garry Trinh might be surprised to be alive, but we’re pretty glad he is. The Sydney-based photographer has been rocking our world for some time now, with his fresh and unique take on everyday surroundings.
Izrock Pressings obviously share our love for Garry’s work, as they have bundled up a collection of his photos into a brand new publication that you can take home with you. Just Heaps Surprised to Be Alive is a limited edition of 100 copies, printed in glorious black and white. Needless to say, these won’t last long, so make haste to the Izrock online store.
