The Last Baymen of Amagansett — Photographs and Presentation by Mike Ruggiero at SoFo

July 11, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$7.50 – $10

Presenter: Mike Ruggiero. Mike has been an East End photographer for the past 25 years, with ties to local newspapers and photography-related organizations in the US and abroad. He is also a working chef. An exhibition of The Last Baymen of Amagansett will open at Estia’s Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor on July 17, 2016. You can see more of Mike’s work at: http://mkruggie.photoshelter.com

 Join us this evening for Mike Ruggiero’s special presentation of his photographic work documenting the lives of our local baymen. His photographs bear witness to perhaps the last full-time commercial inshore fishing family in East Hampton.

Although there are many weekend clammers, surfcasters, and boaters, none take their living from the water as these men do. Mike will introduce you to one or two of these men, here to answer your questions and share some of their experiences. This program is for adults and teens, but children 8 years of age and older are welcome to attend.

SoFo programs are free for members (materials fee applies), $7.50 for child non-members and $10 for adult non-members.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: 631.537.9735.
