Kosti Comes Home: An Exhibit of Maritime Images

April 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Photo by Kosti Ruohomaa

Kosti Comes Home: An Exhibit of Maritime Images
At Camden Public Library
55 Main Street, Camden
April 3- April 30
Opening Reception: April 3 at 7:00 pm

April is Maritime Month and Penobscot Marine Museum will once again partner with the Camden Public Library and create an exhibit for the Picker Room. This is the first exhibit of Kosti Ruohomaa’s photographs since his archive arrived back in Maine last year. 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. 

During the age of the photo magazine, Kosti was a rock star in the photography world. His photographs graced the cover of Life Magazine numerous times. Other major magazines such as Look, National Geographic, and Life used his photos regularly.

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 Penobscot Marine Museum in the fall. The exhibit will focus on his Maine coastal and maritime work. Kosti Comes Home will be on exhibit through the month of April at the Camden Public Library.
