Schaghticoke~You Can Go Home Again stems from a visit to the small rural community at the northern most edge of Rensselaer County in upstate New York where I grew up. Attending a class reunion, suddenly I was looking at the area with a different set of eyes. While growing up many of the local sights there were taken for granted. No longer mundane, they are sights of great beauty.

The photos evoke memories from everyone's childhood and teenage years, but seen with a difference perspective.

A Little About CPG

The Creative Photographers Guild is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization of photographers, from novice to professional, whose mission is to bring the universally expressive power of photography to the community.

The Guild also aims to provide a vibrant avenue for the promotion and appreciation of the creative and innovative world of photography to the greater New York community, especially Staten Island.

In service of those goals, the Guild opened the CPG Gallery in March of 2009 on Staten Island's arts-oriented North Shore.

Members also seek other venues in which to exhibit photographs, promote public awareness of the unique artistic qualities of photography, support other artists and arts projects, and share skills and information with the community at large.

All are encouraged to visit the gallery and speak with the photographers, one of whom is always on hand for discussions.
