Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This series of photographs represents Joseph Szabo interest, encounter and friendship with lifeguards from 1990-2015. Actually his first connection with them started in the late 1960s when he first discovered Jones Beach. So this work is an exploration using photography as an art form and documentary tool. The purpose is to express more fully the lives of people that Szabo has come to know and respect. These photographs are in the widest sense portraits that illustrate aspects of preparation, teamwork, recharging, camaraderie, duty and responsibility.

Chiefly illustrated.
