Description

Photo/Stoner

In 1965, Ron Stoner was the best surf photographer in the business. Every month, he shot the balmy beaches, bikini-clad girls, and achingly beautiful waves of Southern California for Surfer Magazine. Then, at the height of his fame, Ron Stoner walked off this sunny stage and disappeared forever. In Photo/Stoner, Stoner's strange story is recounted by surfing historian Matt Warshaw alongside Stoner's best photos, reproduced as never before. In these rare images, Stoner recorded more than just a beautiful wave or a perfect moment, he captured the effortless and innocent grace of coastal Californiapre-condominium. In word and in image, Photo/Stoner is a poignant ode to a lost era, and a lost man.

One of my favorite things to do in the dark, cold, dead of winter, is invite friends over, throw a surf video on TV without the sound on, crack open some beers, and light a fire. The house warms up, the wooly caps and sweaters come off, and the glittering sun, tanned bodies, and curling waves in the corner of the living room make everyone really really happy. When I can't throw a party, however, I pick up this book for the same effect. It helps to turn on some Jack Johnson to set the mood, but a few pages into these photos and I am completely immersed in endless summer bliss.
