Constantine Manos – America at the Beach

A few days ago I saw this article from Magnum:

America at the Beach: A Colour Study – by Constantine Manos

These are some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. He uses the lights and shadows so beautifully to characterise the colours and scenes. Additionally the photos radiate a deep respect and love for his subjects. They are presented favourable and he took care of protecting their privacy and making them unrecognisable.

The pictures tell about the fun and lid back athmosphere of beach life

Here are two Low res examples. Be sure to look up the full article and gallery, really worth it.
