The Peabody Essex Museum, Salem presents more than 40 images of stunning luminosity and elegance in SurfLand, the first solo museum exhibition of photographer Joni Sternbach. Sternbach captures portraits of surfers in tintype, a 19th-century technique little changed since its invention.

The combination of historic process and contemporary subject is a dynamic one, yielding direct, timeless, one-of-a-kind images of individuals standing on the verge of sea and land. The combination of contemporary and historic extends to the presentation of SurfLand images accompanied by a selection of PEM tintypes from the 1860s through the 1890s, including portraits of Civil War soldiers and members of the Wampanoag tribe.
