INTRODUCING JYE WHYATT

Every time I receive an email from Fabien Voileau, I always figure in my mind what pictures I will discover the next moment. I close my eyes and imagine the long rights of New Zealand, the crowded breaks of California, the secret beach breaks of South West France… But I am always surprised when, seconds later, I actually discover the pictures.
