The Inertia

Editor’s Note: Allie’s images were taken during a photography workshop in Bali. Led by an absolute titan in the surf photography world, Art Brewer, the workshop ran throughout June, and included some of the finest up-and-comers on the planet. The combination of landscapes, culture, and surfing in Indonesia lends itself perfectly to finding a new depth in the student’s work. We’re showcasing the work of the students at the workshop, and trust us when we say that, under Art Brewer’s tutelage, these are some of the best images you’ve seen. The fourth installment is Allie Gray.


Allie Gray, also known as Alliecat, is a 22-year-old photographer and artist based in New Jersey. She has recently earned her BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. At a young age, she became fascinated in the ocean, its waves and the light the sun makes on the landscape. She decided to pursue her hobby and began photographing the landscape and action sports at the age of 14. Since then, she has had the opportunity to work with legendary surf photographer Art Brewer on two surf photography workshops in Puerto Rico and one in Bali, the former of which the photos above produced the gallery above. She has also interned with Jean Paul Van Swae in the Grind Media photography studio. You can’t miss her swimming with her pink water housing and fins.
