The Rise, Fall, and Mysterious Disappearance of Surfing's Greatest PhotographerBook - 2006
In 1965, Ron Stoner was the best surf photographer in the business. Every month, he shot the balmy beaches, bikini-clad girls, and achingly beautiful waves of Southern California for Surfer Magazine . Then, at the height of his fame, Ron Stoner walked off this sunny stage and disappeared forever. In Photo/Stoner , Stoner's strange story is recounted by surfing historian Matt Warshaw alongside Stoner's best photos, reproduced as never before. In these rare images, Stoner recorded more than just a beautiful wave or a perfect moment, he captured the effortless and innocent grace of coastal Californiapre-condominium. In word and in image, Photo/Stoner is a poignant ode to a lost era, and a lost man.
