Newport Beach: A Photographic Portrait II
Photography by Eddie Yerkish
Narrative by Sara Day
With its golden sand beaches, picturesque harbor, and near-perfect year-round temperatures, Newport Beach is one of Southern California’s most desirable destinations. Once overlooked as swampland in the 1800s, it has since transformed from a busy, 19th-century shipping port to today’s chic seaside village, complete with mega yachts, extravagant boutiques, and lavish oceanfront homes. The natural beauty of massive rock formations, dazzling Pacific sunsets, and colorful iconic villages are exquisitely captured by the keen eye of photographer Eddie Yerkish. His artful images make it easy to see why so many come here to live, work, and play.
