Folk on Film x Against the Grain ~ Max Correa
Local break: Wander Beach
1. What got you into film photography?
I got into film because when I joined the navy I always wanted an authentic way to document my life at sea. I want that classic shoebox of photos. But with time, I just got obsessed with the whole process. You really need to take your time with each shot.
2. What comes to mind when you hear Surfolk?
When I hear Surfolk, well I think of life by the sea. It reminds me of being a young grom growing up by the ocean. The freedom of not being surrounded and caved in by buildings and breathing in the fresh air from the ocean thats travelled hundreds of miles to reach our shores.
