FLEMINGTON, NJ — Hunterdon County will be taking center stage next weekend.
From Bloomsbury in the north to Lambertville in the south, more than 100 amateur and professional photographers will be part of Earth Day weekend, April 21 and 22. The goal is to capture images for the Hunterdon Places Photo Project.
Frenchtown’s Bill Brokaw is the founder and coordinator of the event.
“Hunterdon County is unique and special,” he said. “The intent of this project is for us to create a large body of work by a diverse group of people that expresses what we are, here and now, in the early part of the 21st century.
“There are a lot of things that photographers see that the casual observer may overlook,” Brokaw said. “This project is all about what Hunterdon looks like through the eyes of a large group of photographers.”
The project will culminate in two major exhibitions. The first will be during Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-28) at Brokaw Photography Studio in Frenchtown. The photos will also be displayed at the Hunterdon’s Community Day. That will be held June 2 at the County Fairgrounds in East Amwell, just outside of Ringoes.
Other exhibitions around the county are also planned.
