Coney Island

by Amy Lyne


Photographs: Amy Lyne

Publisher: Pepper press

Year: 2017

Price: 35     21.00

Comments: Hardcover

I have been asked why I would spend time shooting Coney Island when it has already been so widely photographed. I was drawn to Coney Island because of Lisette Model’s "Coney Island Bather” and I wanted to know if I could find remnants of that Coney Island.

The train ride to Coney Island would take an eternity. It is at the end of the R train and I live in Downtown Manhattan... 64 minutes and 17 stops later, I would disembark and stomp through the sand for hours on end. The beach was always packed. I would weave in and out of the lines of greased bodies, but no one seemed bothered. Everyone was engrossed in their sunbathing, playing, grooming... I was invisible.
