In May 2012, Richard Tognetti took a crew of surfers, musicians and film makers to Ningaloo Reef, where the desert meets the sea. They spent two unforgettable weeks surfing, making music and filming and the result is The Reef.

Immerse yourself in Jon Frank's images of the ocean, the world's best fin-free surfers, the arid desert landscape and the starry sky, as an incredible array of music swirls around you. It alters your perception of a classical music concert through the prism of a transcendental surf film. You'll never forget it.
