Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport will present “Kosti Ruohomaa’s Beloved Maine,” a free talk in the museum’s Maine’s Mid-Century Moment speaker series, on Thursday, May 20, at 6 p.m., via Zoom. Registration is required. Speakers Deanna Bonner-Ganter, author of “Kosti Ruohomaa: The Photographer Poet,” and Kevin Johnson, photo archivist at the museum, will speak about the life and work of the iconic Maine photographer.

Ruohomaa was a storyteller with his camera. His photos were featured in publications that included Life Magazine, Look, National Geographic, Ladies Home Journal and Down East. In 2018, a large collection of Ruohomaa’s work was donated to Penobscot Marine Museum by his agency, Black Star of New York.
