Two alcohol distributors, one selling vodka, the other selling ginger beer, found that no one wanted to buy their products.

Wall Space Gallery is excited to host an endless summer celebration talking about Sand People, a beautiful series by Daniel Grant that exemplifies the surf culture, the pacific coast and a way of life many dream of.

It is in this place they feel free, yet tethered to the earth and to each other.
