Throwback Thursday – Mon-toque

Ray Smith Collection | Montauk Library Archives

This week we are throwing down the glove, er, kitchen mitt and challenging readers to identify the whos and whats on their own. (Actually, we only know the names of two whos.)

The photographer, Ray Smith, worked in high fashion and advertising, then proceeded to capture a whole different world on his camera here in Montauk. One of his favorite subjects was nature, but for several years he also covered community events for the East Hampton Star, leaving a wealth of personal and family portraits as well as chronicles of such happenings as the annual Greenery Scenery party, fire department functions, weddings, and Montauk School graduations.

The Montauk Library’s Ray Smith Collection can be seen online at the New York Heritage website, where visitors might even find a clue as to who’s in this photograph. Bon Appetit!
