Whether you’re an Australian living in the dead centre, way out West, or on the East Coast,
you can’t escape the effect that waves have on Australian culture every Summer.
Since the middle of the last century, when Australian men and women would pack up on
summer afternoons and head straight to the beach in their panel vans and Sandmans,
surfing has become an iconic part of Australian culture.
For Melbourne photographer, Peter Tarasiuk – who takes photographs for the likes of Monocle,
Australian Traveller, Gourmet Traveller, and Smith Journal to name a few – the pursuit
of photographing beach culture has taken him all over the world.
