LIVINGSTON, NJ — A banner series called “Taking it to the Streets” is currently displaying the photographs of Jan and Raime Press of JanPress/PhotoMedia throughout Livingston, sponsored by the Livingston Business Improvement District and board member Marie Bennett.
Jan and Raime Press, Award Winning father and son photographic team, owners of JanPress/PhotoMedia has presented yet another aspect of their Creative Aesthetic. Their Large Format Abstract Photographic Images depict organic natural forms and designs discovered in nature, hence the title of the exhibit "Found Art."
"The art is comprised of abstract images that are naturally found,” said Jan. “Most people will walk passed what I consider as art, and when it’s enlarged, it just takes on a life of its own."
According to Jan, many of these images have never been shown before. The Presses’ exhibit will be on display outdoors on the Lampposts at the Main Intersection and in front of Town Hall, in Livingston, NJ. There are currently six images on Mt. Pleasant Ave., four by Kings supermarket, two in front of Town Hall, four on Northfield Rd., one by the firehouse and one by Nero’s Grille.
The Presses and the BID are inviting residents of Livingston and surrounding areas to park their cars and walk on the sidewalks to witness these photos up close.
“I think it is wonderful that these images, which represent the microcosm that we walk by or on each and every day, are now enlarged, part of the environment that we are more conscious of,” said Raime.
