Fire Island Limited Edition
Publishing April/May 2018
Alex Geana has created a seminal body of work, capturing Fire Island over a three-year span: Telling the story of The Pines from legendary pool parties to all-night dancing on the beach. He is unique in distilling the essence of The Pines in a glamorous and expansive body of photographic work. His pictures exude the happiness and joy the gay community find in a place where everyone can be free to express their individuality and sexuality.
Freedom of expression, the uniqueness and sense of place is found in every picture. Documenting everything from the Pines Party to the meatrack, telling the story of summer, demonstrating how global warming is affecting the experience and bringing attention to the need to preserve this special place are all themes that are beautifully rendered in this unique collection.
Here is a book and photographs that not only celebrate life, but empower the viewer to connect, to find their memories and friends and remember the wonder of summer in a fantasy place that exists only on a sandbar.
