The first “Gray Malin photo exhibition” in France is showing at colette till April 18th, on the occasion of his collaboration with Sperry. This is a dynamique collaboration to celebrate the sea theme. Photographer Gray Malin travels around the world from the U.S. to Brazil to Australia shooting the most beautiful beaches while flying above in a helicopter.


The Gray Malin brand was fostered with a deep passion for photography and interior design. Merging these affections with a spirit for travel and adventure inspired the character of the brand.

“From above, a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form. These photographs are a visual celebration of colour, light, shape — and summer bliss.”

Through United-States, Brazil and Australia, Gray created images according to Sperry Spirit that travelling is more than a simple picture, as Sperry shoe than a simple boat shoe. The collection includes 3 famous photographs of beaches by Gray Malin taken in Lisbonne (Portugual), Cefalù (Sicile) and Le Cap (South of Africa) come in shoes for Women and Men.
