Josephine Herrick Project
Formerly RTP (Rehabilitation Through Photography)

The Josephine Herrick Project is a nonprofit that enlists photographic community volunteers to educate students who have not had the opportunity to learn the communicative power of photography. Through partnerships with local organizations, JHProject’s completely free programs inspire children, teens, adults and seniors with the visual language of photography, enhancing their abilities to transform communities through artistic vision.

JHP Celebrates Volunteer Photographers with a Mexican Fiesta & a View!

 Maureen McNeil, Executive Director

Thank You JHP Volunteer Photographers!

On July 16th, the Josephine Herrick Project hosted a Volunteer Photograher Party on the rooftop of the Arabella in New York City.  The rooftop space was provided by our Development Director, Elana Hart.  The weather cooperated and it was a “picture perfect evening” for the gathering. The theme was a “Mexican Fiesta with a View.”  The purpose was to thank our wonderful volunteer photographers for all their hard work! It was also an opportunityfor the volunteer photographers to meet other volunteer photographers and exchange ideas, tips and stories. A great time was had by all!

Here’s a few photos of the event:

The Window Painters

By Lauren Kupferberg – JHP Volunteer – July 15, 2014

At first glance the two men in the photo seem to be washing the windows, but after taking a closer look you can see paint brushes in their hands. The shadows of this print are very defined.  The shadows are both above and beneath the men, but never next to them.  Up close this image holds hidden details from the possessions in the windows to the objects in the man’s hands. “The Window Painters” is one in a series of prints called Windows.

About the photographer

Fiona Guedalia is a recent graduate of Stern College.  She has had a passion for photography since she picked up a camera at fourteen.  She has been published in her school literacy magazines, and had her art hung at her school galleries. She taught a course on photography through JHP, the class stemmed from the University Settlement’s Beacon program, which offers free afterschool and summer programs for children and many other classes for people of all ages. The organization helps those in need have the basic classes that most people take for granted. She taught a class about the inner works of photography, the basic structure of a camera, and the best way to take an image. After she taught her students the ‘how’ of photography, she taught them the ‘why’, her students were told to take a form of photography and put it to action. Now she is taking pictures at events, while maintaining her work as an artist taking pictures of objects and scenes that call to her.

Snow Fence, Point Pleasant, NJ by Brian Lav Photography

Blog by Jamie Ogrodnik – July 8, 2014.

Since 1969, Brian Lav has been photographing the world around him. He is recognized as a prominent contemporary photographer, a master printer, as well as an exceptional educator.  He has had over forty one-man and group exhibits.  His work is also in permanent collections, such as The International Center for Photography, The Rochester Institute of Technology, The New Jersey State Museum, The Newark Museum, and the Museum of Art and History in Fribourg, Switzerland.  Brian has been published in many books and magazines and has been teaching at Parsons the New School for Design in NYC since 1974 when he received their prestigious Teaching Excellence Award.

Originally Brian Lav’s primary photographic focus was working with a large format camera to produce breath-taking images in black and white. He felt that without color to distract, the black and white image revealed more clearly his feelings, and the large negative conveyed all the visual details.  Recently, Lav has succumbed to the wave a new technology and purchased a Nikon digital camera, a printer, and several software programs.  By engaging in the new technology, the digital process has opened creative doors.

Brian Lav’s subjects range from classic landscapes to haunting and foreboding depictions of the world in abstract and surreal fragments, to portraits of friends and family.  Lav was born and raised in New Jersey and has developed a special rapport with its landscape.  Most of his images, including the one featured here, Snow Fence, are taken in that state. This archival pigments add subtle surrealism and beautifully relaxing color to Brian’s portfolio, and I am positive, would add nothing but brilliance to your own gallery collection at home!
