“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliott Erwitt

Visit to the American Mural Project in Winsted, May 15 2021



A merican Mural Project. Click on any one of the pictures to see them in full size.




On Saturday members of HCC were able to visit AMP, American Mural Project in one of the two former hosiery mill buildings in Winsted, Connecticut, Member Brian Wilcox arranged for our group to visit the site. It was both an educational and photographic experience for the camera club members. The mural though still in progress is over 80% complete. It is s a celebration of American ingenuity, productivity, and commitment to work, the project is intended as a tribute to the American worker. The mural has both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional surfaces and spans 120 feet long, 48 feet high and 6 feet deep.More than 15,000 children and adults have helped create pieces of the mural, and an additional 30,000 from all 50 states are expected to help finish the project. A multi-subject curriculum based on the mural is now in pilot programs in local schools; an online version is in development.
Ellen Griesedieck, founder and artistic director has conceived, directed and been the prime hands-on painter for this project for over 20 years.
Photographically it presented a unique challenge to the members and each one interpreted what they saw. A representative sample can be seen below.

Visit to Hudson, New York, May 23 2021



Trip to Hudson, New York. Click on any one of the pictures to see them in full size.




Hudson NY is perhaps the best destination around for both unique photographic subjects with a dose of of NYC culture. Members of HCC had a very successful outing walking the streets of Hudson, taking picture of the unusual often surreal shop windows and displays well as the architectural details. As well as the street life. Lunch from a middle eastern food truck and then a trip down to the riverfront park with view of the Catskills. The river front is worth the trip alone. Some even made it over to the shantytown a remnant of early 20th century fisherman community.
I think the club will go again this Summer as there are many special events worth the trip.
