Art Brewer’s archive of surf photos from the 70’s, 80’s and 90s contain countless iconic images that helped to visually define the sport of surfing. This week, Art sits down to shed some light on the current state of photography, how some photos take on a new meaning with age, and why Bunker Spreckels tried to shoot him in South Africa. Drop in for a candid conversation with the man behind so many classic surf photos.
