Kosti Comes Home: An Exhibit of Maritime Images by Maine’s Iconic Photographer Kosti Ruohomaa
April 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until April 30, 2018
The first exhibit of Kosti Ruohomaa’s photographs since his archive arrived back in Maine last year is set to open on April 3, 2018 at the Camden Free Library. April is Maritime Month and PMM will once again partner with the Camden Free Library and create an exhibit for the Picker Room. This exhibit is much anticipated as Ruohomaa’s work has been locked away in a warehouse in New Jersey for the past 50 years. His photo agency, Black Star, donated his archive of negatives, prints and contact sheets to PMM in the fall. The exhibit will focus on his Maine coastal and maritime work.
There has been much interest about the Kosti collection in the past few months including a feature article in both the Bangor Daily News and the Portland Press Herald. Just last week the 207 News Magazine did a feature on the collection. The exhibit will be on display in Camden through the month of April, and will then return to PMM where it will be on display this summer.
On April 3rd at 7:00 pm there will be an opening reception for the exhibit and an illustrated talk by Kosti’s biographer Deanna Bonner-Gantor.
