John Witzig

In the mid 1960s, John Witzig became the voice of Australian surf culture, using an article in the magazine, Surfing World, to herald "a new era for Australian surfing". Witzig contended that a core group of Australian surfers had redefined the sport of surfing by focusing on riding the wave, rather than riding the board. The surf writer and photographer continued to break new ground as editor of Surf International and founder of Tracks magazine. Along the way, Witzig used his camera to capture the essence of the surfing culture. The Last Picture Show showcases for the final time at Dickerson Gallery John Witzig's talent through vintage imagery of the 1960s and 70s and is reinforced by his recent publication - John Witzig: Surfing Photographs of the 1960s and 70s.
