Leigh Wiener was an award-winning American photographer and photojournalist. In a career that spanned five decades, he covered hundreds of people and events.
His images captured the public and private moments of entertainers, musicians, artists, authors, poets, scientists, sports figures, politicians, industrialists and heads of state, including every U.S. president from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan.
On a faithful summer day in 1960, on assignment at Malibu, he turned his lens on the hoards of surfers at Surfrider Beach, capturing a pristine moment in the history of Los Angeles surf culture. Warriors of Radness pays tribute to this moment with a new series of photo print T-shirts, each featuring three rare Malibu Surfrider Beach photographs by Leigh Wiener shot in May 1960. The shirts are available at select retailers worldwide, including Thalia Surf Shop and Reserve.
