We are about two weeks into Summer and were lucky enough to catch some of that beautiful California sunshine on the beach this fourth of July. Joseph Szabo, a teacher and photographer from Long Island spent almost three decades ('72-'99) photographing one of the busiest beaches in the world in this wonderful series "Jones Beach."
"Images of tanned muscle men, catwalk-like displays of beachwear, heavily oiled skin, masses of sprayed hair, and shy adolescents all reveal the dynamics of the beach so close to New York city. Class race, and other potential divisions are temporarily forgotten, and the perfect and the flawed are portrayed with the same respect and tenderness."
