The Princeton Photography Club (PPC) in collaboration with the Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA) will premiere an exhibition at The Lakefront Gallery, Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, Hamilton, NJ in January 2020. “Thriving Together: People and Nature”, is best described as a love story about people, places, and passions within the Pinelands National Reserve (PNR). It is conveyed through photography, art, poetry and text.

We are calling on photographers, artists, and poets to immerse viewers in the beauty and wonder of the PNR diverse ecosystems and habitats. The exhibit will also highlight different ways that individuals and groups value nature and work to protect, restore and sustain our ecological systems and the life within them. By weaving images that portray these human stories among the many natural treasures within the PNR, we hope to encourage participation in a 21st century vision that assures a healthy future for both people and nature. nAll images must be from within the Pinelands National Reserve.
