No stranger to delivering heady doses of Americana in his signature soft, saturated style, photographer Ludwig Favre excels himself with his latest series that takes in the halcyon days of summer in Brooklyn’s Coney Island. A location perfectly in tune with Favre’s style, the oceanside resort is the perfect foil with its colorful rides, exaggerated architecture, and bold signage. From Paul’s Daughter to Nathan’s Famous hotdogs, the Wonderwheel to the Thunderbolt, the landmarks of the Coney boardwalk hit with instant familiarity, while at the same time softened and shaped by Favre’s lens which tends to immortalize subjects with a timeless sense of beauty.
Traversing the over three kilometers of boardwalk and the golden sands of the neighboring beach, Favre documents a day in the life of one of New York’s most iconic city getaways. See more of his work here, and catch him on Instagram.
