Trading War for Waves
NY Times’ Lens Blog has a great post on spanish war photographer Guillermo Cervera, who photographs surfing on his downtime.
“In between conflicts, I go and photograph surfing, I’ve always been scared by colleagues who are obsessed with war. I did not want to be like that. So I go make photos of something beautiful… If you don’t go into the surf, nothing is going to happen. You’ve got to be like a little fish, and stay calm in the water while there are crazy things going on around you.”
