Drawing of Fyke Trap.
Part of a collection of signed drawings by Ralph Carpentier depicting fishing equipment used by the local baymen. The images are undated, they were put on consignment at a gallery in 1992, but most were published in Men's Lives in 1986. A date is estimated based on the Men's Lives photographs project and the Maritime Folklife project. Carpentier was a local artist who was connected to the Men's Lives photo documentation project and Long Island Fisherman project, which worked to capture the fishing industry and the baymen of East Hampton in their daily lives and at work. In this image, a net structure indentified as a "Fyke Trap" is shown.
