"A day by the sea – a daydream that is surely on everyone’s mind at the moment. Photographer Joseph Szabo fulfilled this dream in the 1970s, when he first began going on daytrips to Jones Beach on America’s East Coast and documented the laid-back beach life with his camera. Millions of sun worshipers have squeezed and still squeeze onto the renowned beach in the New York area, the so-called ‘people’s palace by the sea’.
He observed teenagers posing in their beachwear, sunburnt muscle men, women with oiled skin and backcombed hair – the full parade of adolescence set on the dynamic environment of a beach – a melting pot of humanity."
