Society Shutterbug Sucks Them In

Last night, photographer Jessica Craig-Martin opened her show, "American Summer," which pays homage to the Hamptons benefit circuit, at the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery on Fifth Avenue.

here was visual documentation of lots of labels and footwear, air-kissing and cosmopolitans—drinks, not people.

Ms. Craig-Martin, who shoots for Vogue and Purple (not People!) and has worked on ad campaigns for Tracey Reese and Kate Spade, among others, welcomed an eclectic group of well-wishers, including novelist A.M. Homes, Sotheby's auctioneer Tobias Meyer and curator Clarissa Dalrymple.

The photographer is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts, and her department chair, Stephen Frailey, looking Hampton-tanned himself, also showed up. "I love that—he Brooks Brothers and the little pig in the blanket,” he said, pointing to one of the pictures.

"Yup," Ms. Craig-Martin said. "In the Hamptons, even the wieners are Brooks Brothers."
