In 2003, he became the first living photographer to have a solo show at Sotheby's in New York. He lives and works in New York City and in Montauk, New York.The New York hamlet of Montauk, located at the far eastern tip of Long Island, played a formative role in Dweck's work and was the subject of his first major exhibition and book, The End: Montauk, N.Y. Dweck discovered the community in the 1970s and was inspired by its surfer culture.
