Gilles Peress

Men's Lives: The Surfmen and Baymen of the South Fork
by Peter Matthiessen
Publisher's Description
Between 1981 and 1985, photographers Danny Lyon, Gilles Peress, Evelyn Hofer, Martine Franck, Jean Gaumy, Lynn Johnson, and Doug Kuntz began documenting the lives of the commercial fishermen of the eastern end of Long Island. The acclaimed author Peter Matthiessen (The Snow Leopard) has written a powerful and moving portrait of this three-hundred-year-old fishing culture that's now at a critical time due to skyrocketing property values, polluted waters, and restrictive legislation. A fascinating study and a beautifully designed book with numerous illustrations both historical and contemporary.
