Portraits of Summer 2023

(3 customer reviews)


“Portraits of Summer 2023 is from a passion project that I came up with last summer with an eye to this winter.

Winters are hard for me. Always have been. With that in mind I decided last summer that I wanted to have an exhibit this winter based on portraits I took in the summer. So I took my 35mm film camera and walked such Jersey Shore beaches and boardwalks as Ocean Grove, Seaside Heights, Island Beach State Park and others and asked strangers if I could take a portrait of them. I also shot some photos of a fantastic lifeguard tournament in Seaside Park.

I shot this entire series on film because I love how summer looks on film, with the warmth and nostalgic look of Kodak Gold especially. It looks different from digital. It looks like it’s the 1970’s and 1980’s again, and I love that look. I held onto these photos until this winter. And the time has now come to exhibit them.

This book is a commemorative edition to an exhibition I am having this winter. This entire Summer of 2023 series is designed to warm us all up as we get through this winter. This book is smaller, at 5×7 inches, but it packs a lot of warmth and summer in each of the 50 portraits it contains. Get yourself a copy or two, and warm yourself in its golden pages. See you this summer!”

  1. Portraits of Summer 2023 is beautiful little album. As I flip pages this cold February morning and meet beachgoers I can hear the surf and feel the sand warming my feet and my heart. Bravo Gregory!

  2. This is a lovely little book. I am a fan of Gregory’s work and once again, he captures the spirit and beauty of the Jersey Shore through its people and beaches.

  3. I was expecting a book – also the pictures are a bit grainy.
