Fire Island Summary

Fire Island by Alex Geana

Photographer Alex Geana has captured the spirit of Fire Island over a four-year span, telling the story of The Pines from legendary pool parties to all-night dancing on the beach. A fashion photographer in the commercial world, he brings his unique ability to simutaneously capture elegance and lifestyle with his lens by distilling the essence of The Pines in a glamorous and expansive body of photographic work. His pictures exude the happiness and joy the gay community find in a place where everyone can be free to express their individuality and sexuality. Freedom of expression, the uniqueness and sense of place is found in every picture. He documents Fire Island from the Pines Party to the Meat Rack, and goes on to show how global warming is affecting the experience, bringing attention to the preservation needs of this special place.
