Exploring the Delaware with John Welsh, Photographer

Well-known Philadelphia area photographer is documenting life along the Delaware River

Love art photography? Then please be sure to put this on your calendar for Tuesday, January 22 @ 7:30pm in the Winsor Room at Radnor Memorial Library. John Welsh will be showing his stunning photographs of life along the Delaware River, from the headwaters to the bay. John is a professional photographer working in the Philadelphia area and abroad since 1987 and is currently president of the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers.

Here's more about John Welsh:


My love for photography goes back to the '80's when I worked at Huntingdon Valley Library in Montgomery County. That was where I saw my first book of Steiglitz photographs and I was so struck by their beauty that I started collecting book sale copies of all the "vintage" photographers because once you discover one, you find yourself getting over-exposed to all of them. Well, it's years later and I still don't know much about photography because I made the choice long ago to just appreciate them every chance I get. Contemporary and vintage--I love it all.   

Many people know the photography of John Welsh from our local newspaper or from the Gryphon show a couple years ago, where his photographs were shown along with those of Elisabeth Braun and Todd Pitock. Even earlier in the decade, Radnor Library hosted John's Icelandic travel photos... and that is where I first got to take in the wonder of his beautiful landscapes. This was around the same time Villanova had a huge exhibit of the Iceland photographs, too. 

I am thrilled that John is returning to Radnor Library to share his latest images with us on our big screen in the Winsor Room. Please come!

See you at the Library,
