Yawn by Hoshi Ludwig
First edition of 250 copies.
Self-published by Hoshi Ludwig 2021.
A percentage of each sale of Yawn will go directly to Laru Beya - a New York based non-profit which empowers underrepresented youth through surfing.
Rockaway Beach local Hoshi Ludwig picked up a used 35mm point-and-shoot with the loose plan to document his friends surfing. Two years later he has whittled the subsequent photographs down to a stunning photography book YAWN... a celebration of the reality of New York Surf Culture.
"It’s early mornings, friendships, party waves, aging skaters, and an ocean that sometimes feels more like a lake. It's boardshorts to booties and back again."
