'Surfer Girls' - Byron Bay
Byron Bay is Australia's playground for celebrities, models, artists, health gurus and of course - surfers. Many people regard this relaxed, hippie town as one of the top places in the world to visit.
In this series I wanted to create loose, natural black and white imagery that reflect the typical lifestyle of Byron Bay. Using nudity to reinforce the relaxed nature of Byron with locations and scenes that reflect the lifestyle. This narrative based story of 12 images is part of an ongoing series - 12 natural wonders.
