Review: "Hot Fun in the Summertime" at Bonni Benrubi
With all the damp and unseasonable weather this summer, these photographs of sun, sand, and surf are reminders of what we've been missing, as well as what we've endured.
(One of the most evocative images is Peter C. Jones's view of the ocean through a rain-clotted screen.) A classic LeRoy Grannis shot of five surfers riding a breaking wave sets an ecstatic mood, which is immediately grounded by Joni Sternbach's semi-formal tintype portraits of surfers posing next to their boards.
