RIVERHEAD, NY, June 6, 2018) –– East End Arts is pleased to announce a special new exhibition at the Greenport Theater featuring the photography of Bert Morgan: The Best of Jackie O. In the introduction to the book, “Young Jackie,” Olivia Harrison writes, “In these touching images of small Jackie in jodhpurs, tweed jacket and little riding boots, or grinning next to her huge Great Dane, Bonnett, at a dog show, Bert Morgan captures the beauty, poise and determination that would later beguile the world.”

Bert came to America from England at the age of seven and grew up in Brooklyn. In 1930 he bought a camera and for the next five decades would photograph the rich and famous, who allowed him into their social sphere because it was said that he agreed to never publish an unflattering photograph. Bert recognized that Jackie Bouvier was a star from age five and was encouraged by Jackie’s socialite mother, Janet Lee to photograph Jackie as she participated in East End events.

Bert Morgan’s extensive collection of negatives from his career was purchased from his estate in 2009 by film and photo archivist Patrick Montgomery, who has made them available for use in magazines, books and films. Patrick has also generously donated relevant negatives to local east end historical societies and museums, as well as organizations in Florida.

The exhibit begins Friday, June 15 and will be on display in the Greenport Theater throughout the summer, and can be visited during theater hours. An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, July 13, 2017, from 6 – 7:30 PM. The public is welcome to this free event to view the photos from Patrick Montgomery’s collection and speak with him. All exhibited work is for sale, framed as well as unframed. To purchase, contact East End Arts at 631-727-0900. The Greenport Theater is located at 211 Front Street in Greenport, NY.
