Take a leap into the 24th instalment of our ‘By The Sea’ series – a unique, through the lens exploration of what’s driving Australia’s most talented young creatives.

This month we link up with a self-proclaimed “weirdo” from our own backyard, Luke Clark. This absolute photo-lord has been busy knocking out shoots under the moniker Meatwavves for local streetwear legends, Street X and the iconic Rusty Surfboards, feverishly snapping his mates shredding surf & concrete between jobs. A self-aware character, Luke’s unique view of the world is evident in his work; effortlessly capturing life through film from the backstreets of Los Angeles to the local breaks at City Beach.  A man of many hats, he’s also an avid designer slash illustrator – a modern-day creative forever seeking his next challenge in all art forms.

Catch a glimpse of the world through Luke’s eyes & give him a follow on the gram over at @meatwavves
