Photo/Stoner: The Rise, Fall, and Mysterious Disappearance of Surfing's Greatest Photographer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 word and in image, Photo/Stoner is a poignant ode to a lost era, and a lost man.
