Wattsup Montauk - LICKSHOT 8

Wattsup Montauk - LICKSHOT 8

by Ben Watts

Digital Archival Print

Wattsup Montauk is a collection of images taken from the monograph as well as an archival survey of Ben Watts's 30 year career in photography. Montauk Dreaming is a vibrant celebration of the Long Island town that London-born photographer Ben Watts (born 1967) has called home since 1995. A "paradise three hours outside the walls of the greatest city in the world," as Watts calls it, Montauk has exploded in recent years, going from a sleepy beach town to a major summer cultural destination.

 

Lickshot is Ben Watts' highly personalized scrapbook and travel diary. A triumph of lo-fi style, its pages are a gritty pastiche of wonky Polaroids and other photographs, and hand-scrawled graffiti held together by slashes of colored tape. Its contents reflect the vast variety of Watts's photographic subjects—from high school ice skatersBrooklyn biker gangs, and lounging sunbathers to world-famous actorssupermodels, and today's hottest musicians.
