SLIDESHOW: Saturday Night Romps, Photo Editor Style

Last Saturday night, this Edible photo editor shot from 5 p.m. until the sky started to brighten at 4 a.m., attending the Bambini Ball, Edible’s Eat Drink Local Food and Film night at Marder’s, and the all-night reggae party at East Hampton Bowling–Red Bull not included.

Last Saturday night was less than typical. This Edible photo editor shot from 5 p.m. until the sky started to brighten at 4 a.m. From the Bambini Ball in Bridgehampton to benefit Liz Joyce’s Goat on a Boat Puppet theater, to Edible’s Eat Drink Local Food and Film night at Marder’s. Between shots, I snacked on local clams, Ludlow cheeses, hand crafted rootbeer, La Fondita, and ice cold frothy Blue Point brew, plus honey from the Bee’s needs. All cravings were satisfied. Party-goers were then treated to several short films curated by Andrea Grover of the Parrish Art Museum, focusing on stories of the bays and farms of the east end.

As the clock stuck midnight I fortified myself on a shot of a favorite home brewed elixir (kombucha, that is) and made my way to the East Hampton Bowling alley for one final gig: the monthly reggae dance party. There, a large crowd of Jamaicans and Antiguans from posts west, and a few locals partied to the rhythms of the islands into the wee hours of the night. I eyed the Red Bull sometime around 3, but alas, did not partake.



Born and raised in suburban Detroit, Lindsay Morris’ passion for photography began at age 18 when she was given her first camera while spending a year in South Africa as a Rotary Youth Exchange student. In college, she returned to Africa with the School for International Training and spent a semester documenting the radically changing lives of the people of the Lamu Archipeligo in Kenya. Her photographic career course detoured in the ’90s when she launched her own line of responsibly made women’s clothing, which she designed and had produced in India, China and New York, but she found herself drawn back to her original art medium. Since 2006, she has been photo editor for Edible East End magazine. Lindsay’s work has been published in the New York Times Magazine (cover story), Marie Claire, Elle, Internazionale, GEO Germany, Photo District News, Loupe (Boston University), Haaretz Israel, Amnesty International and Sunday Life Australia (cover story) and has been featured on photography blogs Fraction, Slate/Behold and NBC She was a 2013 Critical Mass finalist and nominee for the 2013 Julia Margaret Cameron Award. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado and the Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago. She will publish her first book in November 2014 with Kehrer Verlag.
