Lost Days of Summer is a the continuation of last years Bye Gone Days x Retro Tropical Jetset series by Mark Gabriel, featuring socialites of the tropical jet-set.


This new series deconstructs the memories we have of the days gone past and brings it to present day.  These moments will live on and bring life to a whole new cast of characters; like the Starlets in Freefall, the Phoenix Divers... or the boys of summer. 

"My interest in the tropical socialite has much to do with half-forgotten memories, the patina’d mirror of our own experience, blurs together with discolored family photos, mingles with glamorous magazine spreads and the silver screen, mixes with rat pack crooners like cocktails made in silver shakers. A dissociative fugue of champagne goblets and Frank Sinatra."

"This piece owes much to my spiritual muse for this entire series, Slim Aarons. A photographer without peer in the realm of capturing the elusive socialite in their natural habitats. Slim said, “I photograph attractive people, doing attractive things in attractive places”. But it’s more than that of course.


His subjects feel somehow less exclusive and almost like they, the blue-bloods of yesteryear, could be us. At least for me, that’s a part of the allure. We could be them, they remind me of us. And yet through the prism of our new pandemic challenged lifestyles, it all feels so very far away again."

There's a special energy in town today. Feeling a shift, a small but gigantic shift.

"This piece came about when thinking about the source of feminine power being the source of nature really. The title comes from my fascination with what I call, “the mysterious movements of heavenly bodies”. The movements of the planets and their moons, and the stars. Something about us being made of stardust seems to relate to our connection with the stars. So Starlets in Freefall, which may not sound positive at first blush, is actually a liberation of predestined paths, of breaking ones orbit. Freedom and possibility, indeed."
