The Hitchiker

In 2016, after arriving home from my surfing excursion in Costa Rica, on my my way up to Tofino in search for waves I picked up a young hitchhiker named Jakob Wilhelm. Although the conversations were broken due to a slight language barrier, a friendship was born and we became travel partners that lead us to Portugal that following winter. Jakob, a German model with a penchant for waves, became my photographic muse and source of laughter that still remains. We explored the Algarve, the southernmost region of continental Portugal and it's beautiful coastline which comprises of golden beaches, stunning scenery and picturesque fishing towns.
