During our stay in Australia this year, we linked up with photographer Sam Nolan from Byron Bay to shoot very fashionable photos with very sexy Australian girls. Amid the human mosh pit that takes residency on the Gold Coast during the Quiksilver Pro, we managed to slip into a dive of a motel and get poolside. The motel was an awkward, musty dive of a place. Old men watched daytime TV in the lobby, which was littered with VHS videos and musty board game boxes. All was mostly still before we got there.
Sam shot the girls for us on a beast of a camera: a Mamiya Rb67, which shoots Polaroid film, looks like an ancient weapon and weighs as much as a tank. After shooting only 30 frames dripping with sex appeal, we got out of the pool, sat in a booth, had a drink and walked out. Still dripping wet. What Youth Issue 4 is out next month.
