Santa Monica Pier

Carly Tabak


Behind the Shot

When you think of the Santa Monica Pier, you probably think of—no matter the time of day or night—bright, vibrant, neon colors. That’s why photographer Carly Tabak wanted to put her own distinct spin on the iconic pier.

She aimed to capture stillness and simplicity. The Ferris wheel on a muted backdrop, birds flying, and a calming blue sky create a vibe of calm within the storm. This unique perspective would look great on a gallery wall or as an understated piece in any home.
