Surfer - - Contents -

Pho­tog­ra­pher Joni Sternbach’s an­ti­quated pho­tog­ra­phy process gives her por­traits of mod­ern surfers a time­less qual­ity and im­bues her sub­jects with an air of mys­tery, even when they’re just a beach­goer look­ing for a few waves. Sternbach met this lo­cal Hawai­ian surfer on the beach at Waikiki while start­ing a project pho­tograph­ing Oahu’s surf com­mu­nity (for more on that, turn to pg. 38). The surfer, Kara Akiyama, may not be a top tier pro, but she’s part of a vi­brant global com­mu­nity of women find­ing their joy in the wa­ter, pur­su­ing surf on their own terms. JONI STERNBACH
