Young Jackie on the South Fork explores the life of young Jackie Bouvier and her pastimes in the Hamptons as captured through the lens of society photographer Bert Morgan. Curated and presented by the East Hampton Historical Society, this collection of timeless images of young Jackie Bouvier are reminiscent of a bygone era, synonymous with the romantically rich history of the Hamptons. The exhibit chronicles the tender years of Jackie Bouvier by famed society photographer Bert Morgan. Bert Morgan recognized that Jackie Bouvier was a star even at age five. Encouraged by Janet Lee Bouvier, Jackie’s socialite mother, Bert would seek out young Jackie when she participated in East End events — horse shows, dog shows, and fashion benefits. He photographed her as she grew from a child into a young adult.
The exhibit will open to the public on Saturday, August 5 and stay on display at Clinton Academy Museum through October 8, 2017.
