When you’re lethargically roasting under the sun at a beach and need something to “read”, words won’t always do. Gray Malin’s Beaches on the other hand is particularly on point. Shot not by drone but instead by him snapping away from inside a doorless helicopter, Beaches is packed with aerial photographs of beaches from over twenty cities around six continents which’ll all make you want to do one thing if you’re not already digging your toes into sand: head to your nearest beach.
