This Ain't the Hamptons, This is Bonac

"Ask anyone from East Hampton where we're from, and we'll never say 'the Hamptons,' because we are not from 'the Hamptons.'" Check out a gorgeously illustrated story on the website Narratively by writer and photographer Tara Israel about East Hampton and the people who have called it home for generations. Her project, (a)Bonac, aims to document the experience of East Hampton natives. She says she "embarked on this body of work because I was tired of feeling that the town I hold so precious has only been defined by outsiders."
