Oceanside native and well-traveled surf photog Aaron Checkwood is releasing a limited edition book and photo exhibit at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside, California on June 29, 2012. The opening party, which goes from 7-10pm, is set to feature framed imagery from Checkwood’s book, My Oceanside, along with hand-screened posters and a limited amount of author signed books for purchase.
Carlsbad, CA – June 6, 2012 — Focusing on a collection of photos showcasing life in Oceanside, Aaron deems this a tribute to a city whose people and landscapes are as diverse as the cultures that make it special. "The exhibit is just a snippet of the daily life of a vibrant, eclectic area that stands as the last bastion between San Diego County and the rest of the world," expresses Aaron.
The exclusive exhibit will run through September 4th, 2012 with proceeds from the opening party to benefit the California Surf Museum. The event is proudly sponsored by Oceanside businesses Brixton, Raen, Chemistry Surfboards, and TransWorld SURF magazine.
