April 5th, 2011

"How I Make a Series"
April 5th, 7:30 PM at D & R
Moderator: Rick Wright.

Rick will discuss the evolution of his latest series of photographs "Vessels of the Late Petroleum Age." His enticing subtitle for the lecture reads "How Henri Matisse, Bruce Springsteen, and Edward Weston all connect." Rick has spent the past 2 years collecting recycled plastic bottles and envisioning them, somewhat like a c. 4000AD archaeologist, as a collection of ritual objects, ceremonial masks, or forgotten deities.

The lecture will take the viewers from the inception of the idea, through research/experimentation, and even a Last Minute reinvention of the entire series. As always, come with questions as the artist always enjoys rich discussion and tangents!"

Rick Wright is an educator and photographer whose work is sought after by collectors and has also been widely exhibited at institutions including: Museum of Fine Arts Houston, MOMA, and the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Gallery.

March 15th -- Mastering Selections and Masks for Photoshop Adjustment-Layers.

Moderator: Jerry Gerber

March 22nd -- Mastering Photoshop Curves.

Moderator: Jerry Gerber

March 9th,2011

General meeting.

Our speaker for the meeting will be James Bleecker.
James interprets architecture and interiors in a photographic style that critics often call "classic" "luminous" and "haunting."
The Manhattan-based photographer attended The Rhode Island School of Design, where he received the college's top honor, The Bo Bernstein Prize, for his photo essay, "Vanished Long Island." Documenting threatened historic places "with an immediacy and eloquence not attainable in any other media," (Municipal Art Society of New York), James soon attracted patronage from The Conservation Fund, American National Heritage Areas, Historic Hudson Valley and the Rockefeller family.
Since settling in Greenwich Village - home to generations of Bleeckers - the photographer has received major commissions from The Frick Collection, The American Museum of Natural History, The Morgan Library and The Bank of New York.
James's work is featured in a 357 page hardcover book, Tuxedo Park: The Historic Houses (Tuxedo Historical Society, 2007). The artist divides his time between commissions, commercial assignments and fine art photography. His advertising work appears regularly in Architectural Digest. Internationally, he is represented by the Allen Sheppard Gallery.

Announcing an exciting new workshop offered by The Princeton Photography Club
"Bringing Photography, Painting, and Drawing Together"
Shared with Ernestine Ruben

Explore the possibilities of extending Photography by using painting, drawing and collage. Instead of Photoshop, our intervention will give the photographic image a connection to the human hand. We will first analyze the needs of the image and then apply the appropriate additions. We will experiment with any tools we wish to bring such as watercolor brushes, inks, felt pens, oil pastels, knife points, collage materials, etc. We are pleased to offer this very special workshop as our own Ernestine Ruben shares her experience with our PPC members.
