Aquabumps is the brick-and-mortar incarnation of cult photographer Eugene Tan. By the late '90s, he had become obsessed with photographing Bondi Beach — as well as any other beach he happened to be near. And he decided it was time to share his shots with the world. So, in 1999 — well before blogs were such a common thing — he started posting his images online. He'd email them to his fans and, when Facebook, came along, he set up a page.

Today, Tan has tens of thousands of followers. Every day, they open his emails or jump on his social media accounts and spend a few minutes imagining they're at the beach, rather than at an office or in some inner city traffic jam.

Tan's images look incredible online. But they're even more jaw-dropping in his one and only gallery. You can see them in all their giant-sized glory and maybe even take one home. In addition to wall-sized works, there are cards and medium-sized prints, too.
