When you focus on surfing, sometimes the culture and the people are in second spot. But this time it was a real pleasure, because we were actually there for working(sounds strange when you write that sentence!). So we kind of didn’t have a choice but meeting the people who live there, where we always go just because there are waves.
We had two weeks and appointments for interviews and filming with three Artists in the BAB-Area (Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz). The first quote „life is short“ we learned from Cesare Ancelle-Hansen who is a photographer and a doctor in the emergency room as well. For him the aspect of time is an obsession, because he sees people who die every day. Its his job. So on the other hand he needs his photography, so he can stop the time, at least picture wise. „Life is short“ is a sentence, that has been said so often, that it nearly doesn’t have a meaning anymore. But when you hear Cesar speaking about that aspect you really start thinking.
