The Hunterdon Places Photo Project shoot, April 21 and 22nd, has resulted in a wonderful body of work by the 90 participating photographers. Each of them embraced the spirit of the project, went out and captured images and collectively submitted 384 photos. These photos show us who we are, here, in Hunterdon County, now, in early 2018.
