Publisher Comments:

With his graphic, color-sensitive, and vernacular photographic voice, Douglas Ljungkvist produced a body of work depicting a unique place in the American landscape with strong yet quiet subtexts of time, memory, and identity. He felt the project was ready to publish when Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey Shore in October 2012 and destroyed cottages that he had recently photographed.So Ljungkvist began taking pictures again, this time of homes without roofs or walls, with floors full of sand and doors open to the ocean breeze.

Fine art photographer Douglas Ljungkvist has exhibited at festivals and in galleries both in the United States and Europe as well as winning several awards for his personal projects.
