The Wagon. Featured in View From The Window. Montauk, NY. 2013.
During the 2012 summer season, I photographed the vast and eclectic group of characters present at Ditch Plains beach in Montauk, New York. All of the photographs were taken from inside my family-owned food truck, the Ditch Witch. The service window of the Ditch Witch served as a pseudo photo booth, and allowed for the subjects to open up easily because many were already familiar with me and the surroundings. Montauk is a one-of-a-kind fishing village located on the eastern end of Long Island. My mother has been known to characterize the town with this quote: “There are three guys at a local bar- One is a fisherman, one is a construction worker, and the other is a millionaire. The beauty of Montauk is that you will never be able to tell who is who.” Due to Montauk’s recent popularity, this is changing. This project is my attempt at capturing the simplicity and beauty of Montauk, and all I have ever known. It is this sense of community that is special to Montauk, and makes me proud and blessed to have grown up there. View From The Window is a 10”x10” hard cover photo book that came out on Memorial Day Weekend 2013, books are available at the Ditch Witch, Whalebone Creative, and Love Adorn. The following photographs were featured in an art show at Outeast Gallery in Montauk, NY….. ENJOY!!
