Michael Dweck | The End: Montauk.

Michael Dweck Photography Michael Dweck is a visual artist known for his seductive photos. Dweck studied Fine Arts at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and began his career in advertising where he went on to become a highly regarded Creative Director receiving over 40 international awards (including the Gold Lion at the Cannes Festival!) Eventually in 2001 he left advertising to focus on photography full time. Themes of  youth, summer, freedom, beauty, and the temptations of the flesh, are often apparent in his work. His series: “The End: Montauk, NY” and “Mermaids” are two of my faves.  The End: Montauk, NY is book from his series of photographs that Michael shot in the early aughts out in Montauk. He’s presenting an idealized version of glamorous, timeless, youthful summer. “This is about being young forever and what that means. It’s a little hedonistic.” It’s part love letter, part poetic memoir.  It’s summer incarnate, shot on film, with no photoshop. “Everybody here looks beautiful in the afternoon….The light in the East End or Montauk is so diffuse because of the humidity,” he said. “That’s why these look like that. There’s no Photoshop. I don’t use a digital camera. There’s no tricks. Everybody to me looks like that. I can’t take a bad picture out there, really. It’s just how it is.”
This summer Michael celebrates the release of the 10 year anniversary re edition of The End, original copies of the book sell for thousands on Amazon and eBay. Advanced copies HERE.
ENJOY!
