Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink

by Bill Yates

Classic documentary photography at its best, Sweetheart Roller Skating Rink is a royal road to that special time in 1972-1973 — when the generation of love was at its height in America.

This special limited edition book and gelatin silver photograph publication is comprised of two sets of forty-five books. Each set includes a numbered and signed book and a unique photograph. 

Each archivally printed gelatin silver print is 6x6” on 8x8” Ilford warmtone glossy fibre base paper, signed verso, and was made especially for this publication by master printer Gus Kayafas, Palm Press, Inc., Boston, under the supervision of the photographer. The book and photograph are presented in a handmade archival clamshell case. The two photographs offered were selected by the photographer, editor, and publisher.

Please select print choice #1 or #2 at checkout.
