Cap­tu­ring the 1970s Aus­tra­li­an surf culture

Australia in the 1970s was a wave of long haired boys, flared Levi jeans, crotchet bikini clad girls and endless summer days.

Pho­to­gra­pher John Wit­zig per­fect­ly cap­tures the essence of the Uto­pian, laid back life­style in the coas­tal towns of Aus­tra­lia during the 60s and 70s. His film pho­to­graphs show a life­style of bron­zed teen­agers with sun kis­sed locks and home­ma­de surf boards, shun­ning the tra­di­tio­nal lives their par­ents laid out for them.

John takes us on a during through time, depic­ting sce­nes of a pre-tou­rist, bohemi­an Byron Bay and sur­fing con­tests held at the noto­rious Bells Beach in Victoria.

All images by John Wit­zig from the Arca­dia exhi­bi­ti­on.
