SeventyOne Percent squad : meeting photographer Nadia Stone

She received her first camera at the age of 8, her dad who carried his everywhere he went, and the desire to create memories that remain: this is the simple equation that led Nadia Stone to become a photographer. In her black & white photos, children (often her own) and the bright days of her new life on the other side of the world. A couple of years ago Nadia Stone and her entire tribe left the Landes to fly to the Polynesian island of Raiatea, before finally landing in Australia which is her husband's country of origin. In 2018, she won first prize at the Australian Photography Awards in the portrait category.

Nadia Stone and her family live to the rhythm of the tides and the swell. For her, surfing was a way to better understand the ocean, to respect it better and to transmit the daily concern for ecology to her 3 children. An environmental commitment which she obviously extends to the sun creams she uses in order to protect the skin of her tribe from the sun without damaging their playing field.

To get to know each other better, Nadia Stone agreed to answer our questions :

A surfer you admire ? The majestic Rell Sunn, one of the pioneers of women's surfing. I also admire Alice Lemoigne, I am fascinated by longboarding.

A beach ? The one I miss here in Australia : Labenne-Océan beach.

A photographer ? Peter Lindberg

A SeventyOne Percent product ? The blue Sun Stick. It's colorful, the kids love it.

An ecological gesture ? My project is to build a self-sufficient house to limit the carbon footprint as much as possible.

A country ? There my heart rocks ... There are 3 places that are part of me: France and especially the Landes, the Polynesian island of Raiatea and Australia where I live today.

A dish ? A good raclette or a tartiflette… Yes, I miss cheese :)

A color ? Aqua.

A book ? High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. I love the musical side of it.

A song ? Africa by Toto. There is a cover of this song by Angel City Choral which I particularly love. Otherwise Radiocative by Imagine Dragons.

An animal ? The dolphin

 

Thanks to Nadia Stone for answering our questions.
