The limited edition printing - originally hailed as "the ultimate homage to the sun-kissed surfing life..." - will feature 85 previously unpublished photos, and reflective essays by both Dweck and artist Peter Beard.
Originally published in 2004, The End presented an idyllic and erotic portrait of the famed Long Island, NY, fishing community, and offered an idealized glimpse into the lives of the beautiful denizens who comprised its surfing subculture. From the dunes of Montauk's secret surfing haunts, Dweck's first major photographic work told a paradisiacal narrative about summer and youth, which blended idealism and documentation to reflect a place and a way of life both fading and being reinvented. The original run, as the New York Times noted, "sold out its first printing of 5,000 books in less than three weeks," and became an instant classic, fueled by its groundbreaking narrative form, and now-iconic images like the cover's nude, "Sonya", "Dave and Pam in their Caddy", "Adriana" and "Lilla."
