Surf’s up in Bridgehampton, where we had a strong showing for Brooklyn photographer Joni Sternbach’s book signing. We love her newly published, eye-catching book, SURF SITE TIN TYPE. She used an old-fashioned photography process called tintype and a large-format camera. Sternbach traveled the globe for more than ten years taking portraits of surfers on some of the best beaches for riding waves. Some of the photos were taken on the beach in nearby Montauk.
We were thrilled that she stopped by our summer store to discuss her process and sign copies of her gorgeous new book. Congrats, Joni!
Joni signed books and spoke to guests in the courtyard of the Garnet Hill summer store.
Her beautiful tintype portraits catch the spirit of sun, surf, and summer.
Joni, surrounded by loving friends and fans, celebrated her work Hamptons style.
