In 2003, Sotheby’s presented a large exhibition of photographs by Michael Dweck, the first such event for the photographer and the first time Sotheby's hosted an exhibition dedicated to a living photographer. The Sotheby’s exhibition showcased Dweck’s major body of work celebrating the local fishing and surfing subculture of Montauk, New York. Dweck's profound affection for the Ditch Plains community and his adept technical skill led to the publication of his first monograph, The End: Montauk, N. Y., long since out of print.
Over the intervening years, Dweck has exhibited his photographs worldwide and continues to investigate subcultures throughout the United States and beyond. Fifteen years after the first exhibition, Sotheby’s is pleased to again present the photographs of Michael Dweck. A small retrospective selling exhibition will be on view concurrent with the Contemporary Photographs presale exhibition. Please contact the department for price information.
