Purchase A Bruce Springsteen Print For A Great Cause

In honor of Bruce Springsteen’s 65th birthday on September 23, Bergen County Camera and Gallery 270 are offering friends of Table to Table an opportunity to own a rare photographic image of the Boss taken at Madison Square Garden, November 9, 2009.
It was an auspicious evening as Bruce played the entire album “The River” and it was also the last Garden appearance of the E Street Band with Clarence Clemons who would play his final show with the band later that month in Buffalo.

The edition of 100 prints are the highest quality ultrachrome on metal, featured in a wood frame matching Bruce’s Fender guitar. The 16” x 20” image was taken from the pit by Tom Gramegna with a Leica D-Lux 4.

A percentage of the initial offering price of $750 will benefit Table to Table, a community based food rescue program that collects prepared and perishable food that would otherwise be wasted and delivers it to organizations that serve the hungry in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. and each print purchased provides 3,500 meals. Visit Bergen County Camera in Westwood, Gallery 270 in Englewood, or give us a call at (201)871-4113 for more information.


Great Places to Photograph: Ringwood Manor

headLocated roughly 30 minutes North-West from Westwood is Ringwood State Park and Ringwood Manor. The property was originally established in 1739 as an ironworks featuring several of the country’s most known iron-smiths. The property still features one of the original iron forges, which still is used on occasion.  The main manor was built in 1807 and housed many influential and important subjects in American history. A mixture of nature and outdoor art is sure to provide plenty of photographic opportunities. As you stroll though the paths around Ringwood Manor, you’ll notice plenty of locations featuring well planned symmetry. The equidistant trees, shrubbery, and sculptures combine with reflections to create mesmerizing scenes. Photographers Alfred Hess, Alan Schwab. and Stephen Seyboth recently traveled to Ringwood Manor with Infrared Converted SLR Cameras to shoot the location.
