Our first project in 2016, A River Town, was to photograph one town (Frenchtown, NJ) during one weekend and to generate a collection of images that showed this town, as we saw it. Since then we've done many projects and exhibits involving anywhere from a dozen to 200 photographers all working together.
Below are brief summaries of things we've done. There are many more to come. SUBSCRIBE to the group and be invited to be part of our upcoming projects and events.
WILDFLOWERS SPRING 2021
The WILDFLOWERS project was run in parallel to the GREEN during the spring of 2021. Project photographers trained their lenses on spring flowers as they emerged and enriched our world, bringing color and forage for bees and other insects.
THE GREEN PROJECT SPRING 2021
The WINTER LIGHT project explored the tonality of light. The GREEN PROJECT was a study in hue. It was an experimental project that focus not on the subjects photographed but instead the color. From March through May 2021 participating photographers trained their cameras on a wide range green vegetation under varying light conditions to express the different hues of green expressed by the plant world and the effect of light on the colors.
WINTER LIGHT IN B&W - NOVEMBER 2020-FEBRUARY 2021
This was a three month long project to capture the nuances of winter light from November through February when the sun is lowest in the sky. All the photos were rendered in black and white to focus on the tonality, the deep blacks, bright white and shades of gray.
Each month the photos were compiled and published som participating photographers could see each other's work and indicate the ones they liked best. Their selections were used to determine feature photos for the book of the photos we published.
HUNTERDON BARNS, BRIDGES & BUILDINGS -
JUNE - AUGUST 2020
Hunterdon County, located in western New Jersey, is a semi-rural region in an otherwise densely populated state. Despite years of developmental pressure, it still offers residents and visitors scenic vistas and retains many of its historic building and structures.
Over 100 photographers registered to participate in this project and to explore the county and capture images that reflect its unique character.
