Orient Beach and Manhattan photographer EJ Camp, best known for her celebrity portraits, will display a collection of her second love -- seascapes and dunes shot in Shelter Island and the North and South Forks – at an architecturally unique, Japanese-inspired contemporary that’s on the market for $4.495 million.
The exhibit, "Shelter Art, Shelter Architecture," will be shown during an invitation-only reception with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 4 to 7 p.m. April 10 and for a month afterward by appointment, says Gioia DiPaolo of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, host of the event and the listing agent for the property.
“It’s a great marriage, this house in particular with her work -- it looks like they were made for each other,” says DiPaolo, a friend of the photographer and a collector of her work. “And the house is right across the street from the water, so there’s that whole water element going on.”
The guest list for the reception will include “a mixture of people from the art world, collectors who collect her work, friends, the whole circle that follow her,” says DiPaolo. “I love having the exposure for the house, because a lot of the people who’ve been invited are people who could potentially buy it,” she adds.
The newly completed 6,000-square-foot home in the Hay Beach area of Shelter Island, designed by Manhattan-based Morris Sato Studio, was designed to take full advantage of the scenic landscape with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. The six-bedroom home, which has 6 ½ bathrooms, was built with energy-efficient features, including a radiant-heated Kota stone floor. The house, guesthouse and detached garage are arranged to form a courtyard for the heated swimming pool and gardens.
