The Beauty That Surrounds Us: Celebrating Princeton Dave Burwell

October 30 - November 30

Our beloved town of Princeton offers the photographer a wide range of beautiful subject matter.  From our parklands, waterways, and abundance of trees to the amazing architecture and outdoor sculpture of Princeton University, beauty surrounds us every day.  This collection of recent images takes us on a brief visual trip around our wonderful town and the University.


Dave Burwell’s lifelong love of nature sparked his passion for photography, and he is grateful to be a full-time photographic artist and teacher.  In his classes and workshops, Dave emphasizes the craftsmanship of photography, the artistic principles of design and composition, and the students’ personal creative process.  In his own photography, Dave strives to create images that express the wonder and beauty that surround us each day as we make our way through the world.  By doing so, he hopes to inspire others to deepen their connection with nature and more fully appreciate their local environment.  Dave has lived in the Princeton area for the past 35 years, and teaches at the Arts Council of Princeton, Princeton Adult School, and Princeton Photography Club, and offers local and travel workshops and individual lessons.  Visit Dave’s website at daveburwell.com.
