Take a Walk Through the Hamptons With a Photographer and Her iPhone

The photographer Susan Kaufman fell in love with the Hamptons at the age of 8. She was seated in the back of her parent’s car, on her way from her childhood home in New Rochelle, N.Y., to visit her aunt and uncle’s East Hampton house for the very first time.

It was 1966. Out the window, charming, hydrangea-covered farmhouses, duck farms and potato fields streamed past. And Ms. Kaufman, who would grow up to become a fashion director at Condé Nast and the founding editor of People StyleWatch, felt a flutter in her heart.

In 1997, she and her husband made a slice of the Hamptons their own, purchasing an 1890 cottage in Amagansett. For the three decades since, the house has been a sweet bastion of escape from their Greenwich Village apartment whenever they feel a need to break out of the city and into fresher, quieter air.

In 2022, Abrams Books published Ms. Kaufman’s “Walk With Me: New York,” a collection of streetscape photographs snapped on her daily walks around Manhattan. The compact coffee-table volume is now in its 10th printing, and she has now followed up with “Walk With Me: Hamptons.”
