Mick Short is an Australian who was forced to flee his native homeland under vicious persecution for being a ginger, or a 'Ranga' (Australian derivation of the orange-haired primate Orang Utang).

He has since been granted asylum in SW France where he pursues the dual arts of carpentry, and surfing. Here he is putting melanin issues behind him inside the thumping confines of a La Graviere cavern. Photo: Jeff Ruiz
