Sonya Poles, Montauk 2002
16th January 2013
When I spotted this print yesterday in the background of a photo on an interior website I knew I had to have it, or more accurately, buy it for my husband for our first wedding anniversary.
Little did I know the smallest available limited edition print would set me back $8000. Ouch.
After a bit of googling (“naked girl running with surfboard” got me some amazing hits!) I discovered the image was taken by New York photographer Michael Dweck and wow, is his work incredible.
Sonya Poles, Montauk 2002 is an image from his first major photographic work that was published in 2004 as The End: Montauk, N.Y. portraying the old fishing community of Montauk and its surfing subculture, at the very end of Long Island.
Beautifully suggestive, I just love, love, love the nostalgia of this image and it’s old school Summer vibe. Plus it would look amazing hanging above our bed.
Oh to be an art collector!
