Montauk 11954 – Summer Reminisced Book Launch + Cocktails
Join us for an intimate conversation and summer cocktails at the Blender cafe where we’ll explore capturing nostalgia of a unique American beach town.
Carissa “Car” Pelleteri is a portrait photographer and author. A born and raised New Yorker, while growing up in Brooklyn, Car started shooting portraits of herself and her friends at the tender age of ten. From her friendships and life in the city, Car is drawn to raw and candid subjects for their honesty and authenticity. She also has a love for the ocean, and its surrounding landscapes.
Cocktails and concoctions provided by our partner Health-Ade.
Montauk’s beautiful beaches, and its location just over 100 miles east of midtown Manhattan, make it a go-to destination for city-dwellers seeking summer bliss. More than 100 photos offer viewers an unfiltered peek into the all-American charm of this town on Long Island’s South Shore, famous for its fishing and six surrounding state parks. Native New Yorker Car Pelleteri captures the culture and scenic landscape—surf and sun bathers at Ditch Plains, the terrestrial Hoodoos at Shadmoor, and horseback riding at Deep Hollow, the oldest cattle ranch in the US. Images of the sun dipping into the ocean at Navy Beach, the walking dunes at Hither Hills, and visitors enjoying the fresh local seafood and homegrown brews on the dock distill the essence of summer at a classic hot-spot.
