Morris County Solargraphs

In late 2020 and 2021, I began work on a Solargraph Project covering Morris County and proximate areas with the following project statement in mind:

Capture our emergence from winter 2020-2021 in Morris County by photographing the sun’s movement from solstice-to-solstice.

2020 was a challenging year in many ways. This project aims to track our time as the days get brighter & brighter throughout 2021. Most solargraphs were placed around the Winter Solstice of 2021 and retrieved in June, July, and August of 2021.

2 July 2021 Update: Drew University did a lovely write-up of the project on their stories page here.

17 July 2021 Update: The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts in Madison, NJ were kind enough to host the project at their Discovery Day!

19 August 2021 Update: The Morris Museum featured several images from the project for 2021 World Photography Day.

7 December 2021 Update: LOKL cafe in Morristown is hosting prints from this project, and held an art opening in the cafe on 10 December.

March 2022 Update: The Friends of the Great Swamp featured this project in their March 2022 Newsletter as well as in their Visitor Center. PDF download here.

31 March 2022 Update: The Washington Township Library hosted a hands-on solargraph workshop and project retrospective in late March, 2022. Mark Kitchin of the Observer Tribune wrote a summary of it here.

August 2022 Update: We sold a number of prints from Morris County Solargraphs, as well as Pan About Town, at the Meet Me in Morristown event. Read more about it here!
