DWECK, Michael. The End Montauk, N.Y.

(New York, NY): Harry N. Abrams, 2004. First edition. Folio. Dweck’s first book, photographs of subjects and scenes around Montauk, focusing on its surfing subculture. The photos evoke the paradise of summer, youth, and erotic possibility, and of community and camaraderie in a perfect setting. The work is a blend of nostalgia, documentary, and fantasy. Illustrated throughout with photographic plates, predominately in black and white, including fold-out plates. A near fine copy in a very good dust jacket, jacket with closed tear at base of the spine. Lacking the title band, as is common. Surprisingly scarce in this first edition format and much sought after. This example inscribed and dated, (05), by the photographer.
