About Book 3 – The Bondi Book Photographs by Eugene Tan
When people think of Bondi Beach they imagine the postcard image. Nine hundred metres of sand covered
with 50,000 bodies cooking on a summer’s day. They think baby oil, spinning rims, reflecto sunnies and the beautiful people. The Bondi glitz. The posers. The hipsters. The tragic. They think chaos. They whinge about the parking and they complain about the waves.
Yes. It’s all that. For 2% of the time. When the visitors leave and the rubbish is cleared you’ll find an amazing beachside village. A place where there’s always something different going down. Where the locals range from super rich yuppies to artists in garages. And a guy who gets up every day to take pictures of Bondi.
For the past 17 years I’ve dedicated my mornings to photographing Bondi beach – yep – every single day. There is always something to shoot…pink sunrises, big waves, huge crowds, odd faces, rogue storms or just an empty shoreline and a beautiful beach. Welcome to my 3rd book. There was so much to show you that jamming it into 260 pages was nearly impossible. This is the Bondi I wake up to everyday. I love it and I hope you do too :: uge
Our artwork is often given as a gift. It’s that perfect present for beach lovers. If you order online and we custom make the artwork to your specifications, unfortunately, we can’t do any exchanges or refunds on made-to-order artworks. If you purchase in stock items at our Bondi Gallery we can do exchanges within 14 days of purchase with a valid receipt present (and return the goods in a perfect sellable condition).
Contact us to see what’s in stock now. A great present is a gift voucher from us – let them pick! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all as we can guide you through the decision process.
We ship our artworks globally, framed or unframed.
We have done this for over 14 years successfully. We have clients all over the globe – you name it…London to New York. Obviously it’s more cost effective to send artworks unframed (rolled up in a tube) but if you want to take advantage of our deep knowledge in fine artwork framing, then order framed prints from us.
All our shipped framed artworks are in Perspex, not glass to ensure a break-free delivery. Our bespoke, super lightweight artwork shipping crates absorb the long journey to your home. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all about shipping.
Please note there is a shipping fee calculation once you’ve added this artwork to your cart. All orders outside Australia are sold minus the Australian Taxes (GST 10%).
Come on in! We’d love to see you. Order your artwork online and we will let you know when it’s ready to be picked up.

Uge has been shooting since he was 9 years old and submerged in the ocean since he was 3 (or at least that’s his first memory). He shoots daily at Bondi and often travels the world in search of other idyllic paradises. Since 1999 he’s sent out a daily photo email from the beach, which has a global audience.
