For a sweet new year: 'Shtetl in the Sun: Andy Sweet's South Beach 1977–1980'

Featured image is reproduced from Shtetl in the Sun: Andy Sweet's South Beach 1977–1980, the companion publication to the hit documentary film, The Last Resort. "Sweet is really looking," Lauren Groff writes. "He's paying attention. The way he sees people nearing the end of their life is vibrant; he loves them in the brightest colors he can magic out of the camera… Picture after picture shows old ladies sitting quietly in their beach chairs outside of their tiny hotels, gentle moments of rest, their sneakers huge at the ends of their columnar, panty-hosed legs. And because Andy often shot in the late afternoon, with its hot and slanted sun and lengthening shadows, there is a sense of swiftly depleting time, a threnodial quality to the work that underscores the humor and deepens it."
