Description

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.

Author Biography

In 1965, coastal Southern California truly was the promised land. Surf photographer Ron Stoner effortlessly captured all of its graces--its balmy beaches and bikini-clad girls and achingly beautiful waves. Several years after cementing his reputation as the best surf photographer in the business, Ron Stoner mysteriously walked off this sunny stage, never to be seen again. For the first time ever, Stoner's strange story is recounted by surfing historian Matt Warshaw, alongside Stoner's best work, hand selected by photography legend Jeff Divine. More than a monograph, Photo: Ron Stoner is a poignant ode to a lost era and a lost man.
