LIVINGSTON, NJ – The private art photography collection of Jan Press, owner of Jan Press PhotoMedia in Livingston, and son Raime Press is now on display at Livingston Town Hall. Each limited edition piece is on sale and 50 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside in the month of September.
Raime Press tells the story behind “Sandy’s Trees”
These large format (24 in. x 36 in.) photographic C-prints are mounted on Masonite and “float” on the wall. “There is no Photoshop manipulation – they are all conceived and created in the camera,” explained Jan Press.
He added, “It’s ‘Found Art,’ which is the title of the show – which I feel is something that most people walk past or just don’t really see the art value in the image itself. It can be a crack in a wall or a rusty paint can – it can be reflections.”
Jan and Raime have selected 30 original prints for this exhibit which have names such as “Clipped Tips” and “Fried Egg.”
The father/son exhibit entitled “Found Art” will be viewable from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
Jan and Raime’s studio (Jan Press PhotoMedia) at 72 South Livingston Ave. has been serving the area with award-winning photography for decades. Jan Press is a third-generation photographer with an MFA in photography. He has won numerous awards from the Professional Photographers Association of America and Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. Jan’s work has also been published in many books on photography by KODAK, Silver Pixel Press and Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.
