27 Frames

Rob Kulisek

Rob Kulisek is hands down one of our favorite photographers here at Indoek. We first took note of his work being featured at Saturdays NYC, in Man of The World and Vogue, since then he has shot for numerous other publications and brands we hold in high regard. His style is both subtle and sophisticated, he has an eye for composition and lighting that is developed and refined way beyond his years. A young man of few words from the Garden State and a natural behind the lens (and on a surfboard), Rob is somewhat of an enigma. We are especially pleased to have him involved in the 27 Frames project as Rob is not a surf photographer, but an amazing photographer who happens to surf. In case you are just tuning in to this new series, the concept is simple: we sent 27 single use cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results. These 27 Frames belong to Rob Kulisek.
