Sagaponack photographer Mort I. Hamburg‘s new book Commitment (published by Cider Mill Press on November 27) may be the ideal Hamptons coffee table tome for St. Valentine’s Day. With text by Kashmir Hill, the 168-page picture book offers moving portraits of some of America’s most recognizable personalities as they share their secrets to successful relationships. Featured are Mandy Patinkin & Kathryn Grody, Joy Behar & Steve Janowitz and Jerry Stiller & Anne Meara, to name just a few.
A celebration of love and commitment, these stories from renowned figures span the bridge from love at first sight to a reluctant proposal acceptance—sometimes in the same relationship. These are love stories of legend told in photos by Mort Hamburg and life stories of people destined to be with one another for the long haul, written by Kashmir Hill.
