From the Archives: Remembering Kosti Ruohomaa, October 1969
Read Lew Dietz’s remarkable tribute to photographer Kosti Ruohomaa, published in the October 1969 issue of Down East.
“Writing about a departed friend is never an easy assignment. When the good friend, by virtue of his special genius, belongs in public domain, the task becomes a responsibility. I expect I knew Kosti Ruohomaa as well as it was possible to know that uncommon, problem-wracked man. He was scrupulously honest about himself. He deserves nothing but honesty from me.”
