The Passionate Photographer: Kosti Ruohomaa’s Maine in Magazine Photojournalism
July 18, 2015 through July 16, 2016
Published widely in major pictorial and news magazines of the 1940s and 1950s, Kosti Ruohomaa’s photographic essays, features, and portfolios helped define Maine in the national imagination. The exhibition reflects Ruohomaa’s dramatic eye and poetic sensibilities, as shown in vintage photographic prints and magazine pages. Ruohomaa’s personal scrapbooks and albums, on public view for the first time, reveal an extraordinary record of his vision and growth as a professional photographer.
