// BOOK SIGNING // saturday 2.20, 7-9 PM

In her critically acclaimed monograph 'Surf Site Tin Type' (Damiani) fine art photographer Joni Sternbach gathers the worldwide surfer community together in a series of fascinating portraits that celebrate surfing as a sport and way of life. Using the nineteenth-century wet-plate collodion process with a large-format camera, Sternbach creates one-of-a-kind tintypes that capture the bold individualism of the men and women who live to ride the waves. From the United States to Australia to Cornwall in England, Surf Site Tin Type brings us surfing legends, current stars and local practitioners portrayed in exquisitely detailed images.
