Sixty-five years ago, brothers Alfred and Lawrence Porto opened a photography business on Elm Place. Alfred covered weddings and Lawrence schools. The two did a thriving business and enjoyed what they did. When they outgrew the space, they moved to Purchase Street, where Rags is today. After Alfred retired, Lawrence moved the business to 55 Purchase, where it remains today.

 

A well-known photographer in his day, Lawrence photographed silk flowers for catalogs, among many regular assignments. On Saturdays, he got help from his son Robert, who stepped in to run the business when his father became ill.

Robert and his wife Anja have been at the helm since 1996. Their steadfast associate, Pedro Garcia, came on board almost five years ago.

 

“Our shop runs like a well-oiled machine,” says Anja. “We have truly amazing customers who make our job a joy. We look forward to serving the com munity for many years to come.”

While Rye Camera still possesses a mom-and-pop feel, they work with the latest technology, and can reproduce and recreate any treasured image.

Venturing into a whole new world, the Portos invite you to their shop March 28 at 7:30 p.m. to learn about a photography tour they are participating in this fall.

 

Comemeet Newsweek photographer John Rizzo and Epic Photo Tour Director Herb Leventon who will talk about and offer a slide show and provide details on a tour of the Omo Valley in Ethiopia September 10-20.

 

This remote area, 15 hours by car from Addis Ababa, is home to a population of 200,000 — eight main tribes who speak over 45 languages — whose way of life and very existence is threatened by a hydro-electric dam being constructed upstream.
