NEW YORK, NY.- Award-winning photographer and bestselling author, Christophe von Hohenberg, began taking photos at the young age of fourteen. He was inspired by his stepfather, the photographer Wendy Hilty, who presented Christophe with his first camera, a Rolleiflex Twin Lens 2.8. These days, Von Hohenberg is widely known for his photographs at Andy Warhol’s memorial service in 1987; in the forthcoming The White Album of the Hamptons (released May 25, 2021), he sets his sights on capturing the magic of a storied New York coastline.

In these pages, Von Hohenberg’s black-and-white photographs of The Hamptons give the impression of squinting against the glaring summer sun—bleached-out details blur and faint gestures carve out the presence of painterly human figures against a vast expanse of ocean and sky. By allowing himself to be “blinded by the light,” von Hohenberg captures the harmony, stillness, and nostalgia of these Eastern shores.

These photographs--at once haunting and serene--are sure to evoke in viewers feelings of the sublime. Though a departure for an artist whose lens is typically focused on human subjects, The White Album of the Hamptons demonstrates Hohenberg’s mastery no matter the subject; by employing a style that innovatively plays with light and exposure he captures the dream-like beauty and breathtaking soul of these familiar beaches and leaves viewers feeling like they have entered a completely bewitching environs.

Born in Oyster Bay, Long Island, photographer and author Christophe von Hohenberg was brought up in Southampton, New York; Neubeuern, Germany; St. Croix, Virgin Islands; and New York City. Von Hohenberg has photographed for American Vogue, Interview with Marc Balet, Vanity Fair with Elisabeth Biondi, German Vogue with Rados Protic, French Vogue with Jocelyn Kargere, and advertising campaigns for Givenchy, Estee Lauder, the New York Times, and others. He is the author of Another Planet: New York Portraits 1976-1996 and Andy Warhol: The Day the Factory Died, designed by Daniel Stark, which one the AIGA Book Award and the Photo District News Award. He currently divides his time between New York City and the Hamptons.

Jay McInerney is the author of twelve books, most recently Bright, Precious Days. His other works include Big City, Model Behavior, The Good Life, which received the Grand Prix Littéraire, and How It Ended, a collection of short stories, which the New York Times named one of the best books of the year. His work has appeared in New York Magazine, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, the New York Times Book Review, the Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, and the New York Review of Books. He was born in Hartford, Connecticut, and was brought up in Oxford, Surrey, U.K.; West Vancouver, Canada; Chappaqua, New York; and Pittsfield, Massachusetts. He currently lives in New York and Nashville, Tennessee.
