About Us
President's Message 2015

Carl Geisler

Founded in 1982, the Princeton Photography Club is a diverse group of photographers who share ideas, techniques, and fellowship, while working to improve their photographic abilities.

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

The Princeton Photography Club 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. Gallery exhibits, featuring our members’ works as well as those from other talented area artists, change every two to three months.

PPC also collaborates with the D&R Greenway Land Trust by encouraging high school students to submit entries, with a focus on open space preservation, to an annual, juried competition, which is exhibited April through May in the Olivia Rainbow Gallery at the D&R.

Our members have embarked on two long-term projects. The first highlights the history of land use at Grounds for Sculpture (GFS). In 1888, the Inter-State Fair Association purchased over one hundred acres and established a permanent location for annual events. GFS's photographic archives help guide our members as we document the evolving changes in land use of the original fairgrounds, mounting an exhibit featuring PPC photographs in September 2015 at Grounds for Sculpture.

The objective of the second, New Jersey Diversity: People, Places, and History, is to produce a commercially printed book containing memorable photographs and accompanying text about our diverse state. On display at Millstone River Gallery, from June through August 2015, will be selected images created for the diversity project.

Thanks to Paul Douglas, once again the coordinator and editor of PPC’s Annual Year in Review. We are honored that both the Princeton Public Library and the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University hold these histories of our members’ talents in their permanent collections.

To learn about our members’ achievements and to see more examples of their photography, please read Members’ News, posted on our website, princetonphotoclub.org.

It has been an honor and a privilege to be president of the club for the past eight years. This year I am delighted to be sharing leadership of PPC with my wife, Sheila.

What a delight to see the club grow and the quality of images soar!
