Photographer Kristin Rutkowski will be the speaker for the December Lunch & Learn at the St Michaels Library on Monday, December 4th at noon.
Rutkowski is the founder and photographer of Her Helm, a portrait celebration of women leading the way on the water. Dedicated to sharing the inspiring stories of female captains, each portrait share their own unique backgrounds and experiences.
The project honors these women for their resilience and determination in forging their own path in the maritime world.
She raises the voices and highlights the lives of women through insightful interviews and powerful portraits. Rutkowski traveled the length of the Chesapeake Bay for over 2 years to include women boat captains in this project.
The Chesapeake Bay edition of Her Helm project culminated in a fine art portrait book. The first half of the book features each of the 51 women in the project, while the second half of the book includes invited writers and artists around the Bay sharing their own perspective of living on the water.
The Lunch & Learn Speakers series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Coffee and dessert will be provided. For more information, visit www.tcfl.org or call 410-745-5877.
