THE ROOSEVELT PROJECT: photographs by Fran Orlando 

Photography Exhibition and Reception         

                        Reception:-- May 22, 4–7 p.m. at Hicks Art Center Gallery, Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA.

'My solo exhibition was 40+ years in the making. I began photographing the residents of Roosevelt, New Jersey in the late 1970s, right out of college. The project was interrupted when I left for graduate school and only resumed when I retired after 35 years at Bucks County Community College.

Roosevelt (then Jersey Homesteads) was born in the 1930s as a New Deal project to move Jewish garment workers out of the city to live in the country. My concept was to create a portrait of the town by photographing the residents. I've scanned my original black and white negatives to digitally produce archival pigment prints, thus bringing the work into the 21st century.
