'Bummerland is a publication about riding the waves. Through washed-out images of calm seas, rolling California hills and faded memories from a thousand summers past, Will Adler constructs a fantastical landscape of cute girls, deserted beaches and salty tides; at once immediately tangible, but dreamlike. Images bleed through pages, fold back on themselves and merge into an oscillating, hazy scrapbook of memories, of adventures and experiences - image experiences made and committed to memory in the downtime, that perfect fluctuating time between catching the next wave, or on the journey to the next big adventure.'
