the quality is fine.
the print is ok.
and the illustrations are excellent.
the only thing that makes me give tis book 4 stars and not 5 is that the print of some photographs exits the size of one page and is printed in tow pages making the picture look distorted.this is not a book fail but is something that some publishers for some unknown reason chose to do...witch i don't understand and i don't like it at all.
Seldom in photographic journalism has anyone depicted the spontaneity of humanity enjoying a day at the beach as well as Mr. Szabo. For example, the extreme closeup of a perspiring woman, drenched in sun lotion, is so vivid you can almost smell it. The sensual photographs of boys and girls striving to attract one another, showing their joy of being together and at the same time their loneliness, awakened by own memories of days at Jones Beach. A double page photograph of the mass of humanity stretched out on beach chairs and splashing in the breaking waves, is also outstanding.
Other great photographers like Weegee have photographed the beach, but no one has concentrated more on the people who populate that beach than Joseph Szabo.
A MUST HAVE BOOK IF YOU LIVE ON LONG ISLAND.
