Frank Sauer + Local Photographers
November 2nd, 2022 to December 6th, 2022 at the Witherspoon St. Cafe
Perspectives on Preservation: Capturing Fine Details and Sweeping Views of the Mountain Lakes Preserve is a group
photo show presented by the Friends of Princeton Open Space and features photographs taken at Princeton’s
Billy Johnson Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve in the winter of 2021. The show includes photos selected from
submissions made to the Friends of Princeton Open Space’s annual Give Thanks for Nature Photo Contest, as well
as botanical photographs from the Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve taken by Princeton photographer Frank Sauer.
The show’s title references the range of subjects and activities that the photographers captured within
Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve’s 75 acres of protected public land—reflecting its use as a place of
recreation, contemplation, and artistic inspiration, as well as its value as habitat for a variety of native flora
and fauna. With its upper and lower lakes, numerous rocky creeks, wooded wetlands, and upland forests, the Preserve
holds a diverse range of ecosystems, which are made accessible via over eight miles of trails maintained by Friends
of Princeton Open Space and its community of volunteers.
The show opening on Friday, November 4th from 6 pm to 8 pm will feature jazz guitar by Ilan Eisenzweig. All photos
will be offered for sale with a portion of the sales benefiting the Friends of Princeton Open Space. Contest photos
from the 16 and Under category will also be displayed, but not offered for sale.
