Book: Lawrence Wayne «Orchard Beach. The Bronx Riviera»

Orchard Beach. The Bronx Riviera

Производитель: "Prestel"

Orchard Beach might not be the most elegant place to sunbathe, but if you live in the Bronx, it`s the closest place to swim, relax on the sand and escape the city`s oppressive summer heat. Drawn to the public beach for its less-than-glamorous reputation, photographer Wayne Lawrence felt a connection to the community as soon as he began snapping pictures. His glamorous pictures of proud men and women, loving couples and families at play challenge stereotypes associated with working-class people by focusing on universal themes such as the ties that bind and cultural pride. Whether Anglo, African American, or Latino; statuesque or stout; young or old, each individual is treated with dignity and sensitivity. Lawrence`s subjects are a community standing in defiance of popular opinion, proud to call Orchard Beach their own. ISBN:978-3-7913-4871-1
