"Published in 2004, Michael Dweck's first major photographic work portrays the old New York fishing community of Montauk and its surfing subculture. "The End: Montauk, N.Y." is an American version of the Arcadian vision. Blending nostalgia, fantasy, and documentation, these striking photographs from the dunes of its secret surfing haunts present a paradisiacal narrative about summer and youth; portraying a compelling portrait of a place in time and a way of life at once fading and being reinvented with each new season. Fueled by its groundbreaking narrative form, and now-iconic images like the cover's nude, "Sonya", the first printing became an instant classic". A brand new, most handsome example of the uncommon 2004 Harry N. Abrams first printing of this stunning tome limited to five thousand copies still in the publisher's printed vellum cover band. 0-8109-5008-1 Inventory Number: 025405
