The campaign will raise funds for a photo book about being in love on the city’s beaches
BROOKLYN, N.Y. /CitizenWire/ — Photographer Erica Reade announced today the kickoff of her fundraiser campaign “Beach Lover: a NYC Summer Love Story.” The photographic series about love and intimacy will be turned into a book that will offer nostalgic and candid images of the love shared between couples at the beaches of New York City.
“I have spent years photographing beach-goers and the intimate gestures of couples; some tender, rubbing sunscreen on a partner’s back; others lustful, a deep kiss in the water. Being on the beach emboldens couples to enjoy more affectionate freedom, their inhibitions less hidden than anywhere else I’ve observed in the city. I capture these tender moments that would otherwise be lost or overlooked,” says the Brooklyn-based photographer.
New York is home to a one-of-a-kind beach culture that is diverse, time-limited, and low-profile. After six years of documenting this subject, Erica is ready to publish her first book and needs the community’s support. The funds will help cover production costs and allow Beach Lovers to reach a broader audience.
