About Us
President's Message 2018-2019

David Anderson

Founded in 1982, the Princeton Photography Club is a diverse group of photographers, novice to expert, pursuing excellence through education, encouragement, and opportunity.

The club holds meetings with eminent guest speakers and offers workshops including introductory and advanced camera techniques, color management, composition, matting and framing. Many of the club’s workshops encourage creative photography. General meetings are held at 7:30 PM on the second Wednesday of each month, September through June, at the D&R Greenway Land Trust, Princeton NJ, and are free and open to the public.

The club has developed relationships with other nonprofit organizations in the area, including the Pineland Preservation Alliance, D&R Greenway Land Trust, the Historical Society of Princeton, and Grounds for Sculpture (GFS).

The Princeton Photography Club (PPC) provides curatorial management for the Lakefront Gallery at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton as well as the Millstone River Gallery at Merwick Care & Rehabilitation Center in Plainsboro. PPC is one of the few photography clubs with two galleries in which to exhibit. This gives both our members and, by invitation, local artists venues where they can display their talents.

Our members have undertaken several long-term projects. The first culminated in an exhibit at the Grounds for Sculpture (GFS), Hamilton NJ in Fall 2015. GFS's photographic archives helped guide our members as we documented the evolving changes in land use of the original fairgrounds. Prompted by our two galleries’ diverse surrounding communities, PPC’s second long term project was a photographic documentation of “Our NJ Communities: Diversity as Witnessed Through the Lens” on display in Winter 2016.

Several new long-term projects are starting up in association with D&R Greenway Land Trust (“Healing Trails”), and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.

These exciting projects reflects the future of PPC and will leave a lasting legacy of stories that images can share. We hope that the end result will be traveling exhibits, to engage large audiences throughout the state.

Since celebrating PPC’s 25th anniversary, each year we have published a book, Princeton Photography Club’s Year in Review. Vincent La Posta, our most recent editor, has curated the PPC book since 2015. We are honored that the Princeton Public Library, the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University, and the Plainsboro Library hold recent histories of our members’ talents in their permanent collections.

Socializing at general meetings and at workshops, Princeton Photography Club members develop new and ongoing friendships. We count this as an important aspect of the PPC environment.

To learn about our club events, meetings, and members’ achievements, and to view examples of their photography, please see our website, www.princetonphotoclub.org, and contact me to ask to be placed on our mailing list.
