Jones Beach Lovers
World famous Jones Beach State Park, home of 6.5 miles of beautiful white-sand beach on the Atlantic Ocean, is made up of more than 2,400-acres of maritime environment on the south shore of Long Island. It was the creation of master builder Robert Moses in the 1920s. By dredging sand from what is now the State Boat Channel, Moses raised the elevation of the barrier islands by fourteen feet, connecting several small islands into one long stretch topped by Ocean Parkway.
This image was captured in the 80's during a wintertime walk on the beach. The patterns of the snow fences and shadows offer an infinite range of possibilities. I was busy shooting when these two lovers crossed the confluence of two fences. The original Tri-X negative was converted to pure black and white using diazachrome (blue print film) developed in ammonia fumes through 7 generations to get this result. Obviously pre-Photo Shop.
