Maggie Marsek has had quite a week. She’s had a birthday and has two photos in a show in Brazil called FestivAlma alongside photographers like Patrick Trefz, Jamie Brisick, David Pu’u and Sean Davey. It didn’t stop there though, her first print mag editorial feature came out the other day in Brazilian surf magazine Alma Surf and coolest of all, so did her first cover, also on Alma.
UPDATE: All photos curtisy of Jair Bortoleto, who conducted the interview and snagged a copy of the mag, for Maggie before they hit the streets. Thanks Jair!
The cover image is from a shoot at SanO with Alex Knost and crew. Their scene is funktified and colorful, which helped Maggie come away with tons of great photos from a morning of lousy surf. It took seeing it for me to think so, but I love that Alma went with it for the cover. Wet Suits, Damp Towels, surfboards and surfmobiles are usually a clutter that could never take the center stage. The combination of their scene and Maggie’s color and composition work transform a chaotic jumble of gear into a Rockwellesque painting of the core trappings of our lifestyle.
The interview (all in Portuguese) is long and chocked full of images Maggie has captured while enjoying the surf life in Socal and Baja. More photos after the jump…
A Rich Spread Photos from the road to Scorpion Bay, legs at SanO and a view you and I would never find of a local pointbreak.

The Show Looks well produced. If only we could attend. :D
