Editor’s Note: “Spot Snapshot” is a series that highlights an image and explains what you’d never know by simply looking at it. As the cliché goes, “a picture is worth 1000 words.” Here, a featured photographer brings you both.
“The Collection Cave” came alive after a friend was in Papua New Guinea for business. He found the local kids were surfing on dug-out tree trunks, and gave them the old board that he was travelling with. Instantly, he was consumed by their excitement with a real surf board, so upon returning to Australia, he told me what happened and that he wanted to collect more boards to take over.
