Bryce Leisy

Bryce Leisy (Studio #41) – 3955 Massachusetts Street

Bryce Leisy is an anthropologist, surfer, photographer, and avid camper living in Long Beach, California. He studied at Golden West College, Long Beach City College, and Orange Coast College where he focused on completing his general education and following his passion for film photography and videography. Continuing his education, he transferred to California State University Dominguez Hills where he graduated with honors, receiving a bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology. Bryce is currently continuing his education at California State University Long Beach in their graduate program for Applied Anthropology, researching the history of surfing and beach culture in Long Beach, Ca, the impact of surf tourism on the undeveloped nations of the world, and writing his thesis on the addiction epidemic facing many American Indian communities today with a focus on Los Angeles County in particular. During the school year he works as coach of the Wilson High School Surf Team, where he has been for the past ten years. In the summer, for the past seven years, he has taught surf lessons at and managed Banzai Surf School in Huntington Beach. His passion for surfing can be seen in all facets of his life from his research to his photography. Using cameras, which he has inherited from his parents and great-aunt and uncle, he documents his exploration of the world around him. Most of his photography focuses on landscapes and man’s manipulation of the natural space, as well as his nostalgia for the classic Southern California counterculture aesthetic (surfing, hot rods, camping, etc.). His work has been featured in five books of his own making, each one addressing a different trip abroad. This is his second public showing of his work.
