Black Tie International Magazine:  Celebrating US!


Celebrating US!

Photographs from Presidential Inaugurations & Historic
White House Moments


Fatima NeJame and Lois Frankel

Fatima NeJame and Lois Frankel


On view are photographs that capture the emotion and drama of
the Presidential swearing-in ceremonies and historic White House moments of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.
Celebrating US! opened on November 13 and will run through
early January.

“What better way to inaugurate the Palm Beach Photographic Centre’s beautiful new home in City Center than with an inauguration-based exhibition,” said NeJame. “And the theme of Celebrating US! has many meanings because we are celebrating the U.S., celebrating democracy, celebrating our wonderful new 26,000 square foot location in downtown West Palm Beach, and celebrating the incredible work of some remarkable photojournalists, several of whom attended our Grand Opening.”    

Among the presidential photographers whose work are on display at the Photo Centre are:

+ David Hume Kennerly, President Ford's White House photographer

+ Robert (Bob) McNeely, President Clinton's official photographer

+ Pete Souza, President Barack Obama's chief photographer

+ Anne Day, who has photographed three presidential inaugurations and whose work has appeared in major newspapers and newsweeklies

+ Paul Morse, who was deputy director of photography at the White House from 2001 to 2007

+ Karen Ballard, a freelance photographer best known for her work in Washington and the Middle East, and on major motions pictures (the James Bond thriller Quantum of Silence, as well as Munich, Defiance and Rambo)

 “A longtime supporter and frequent lecturer at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, Mr. Kennerly  attended the Grand Opening celebration on November 13 along with Mr. McNeely, Ms. Ballard and several other nationally known photographers,” said NeJame. “We also intend to present these and other distinguished presidential photojournalists in a special panel discussion and/or workshop for
PBPC members.” 

In addition to Celebrating US!, the Photo Centre will be presenting two more Grand Opening exhibitions: 


Anna Tomczak

Artist-photographer Anna Tomczak has explored the nature of still life. This exhibition consists of numerous photos including original 20 x 24 and 8 x 10 Polaroid Transfers, Iris Prints and Archival Editions, many of which are from private collectors. “This exhibition  represents a never-ending search of gathering treasures and unusual objects to depict a narrative that contains elements of magic,” said Tomczak, who’s large format dye-infusion transfer photographs have been featured in exhibitions and collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Florida Gulf Coast Museum of Art, Harn Museum of Art, McGraw-Hill, Museum of Florida Art, Polaroid Collections, Polk Museum of Art and the Tampa Museum of Art. She has received numerous awards for her photographs, which have been featured in many publications.


13th Annual Juried Exhibition

This juried show for Palm Beach Photographic Centre members was showcased in the new Community Gallery on the second floor.  Artist-photographer Anna Tomczak will juror the INFOCUS exhibition.

About the Palm Beach Photographic Centre:

Dedicated to the enrichment of life through education, exhibitions, community programs, workshops, and cultural activities that promote the art of photography and digital imaging, the Palm Beach Photographic Centre has been hailed by the highly respected Columbia Journalism Review as one of the world’s leading photo centers.

With a soft opening planned for late October in a spacious 26,000 square foot home at City Center, the newly relocated Palm Beach Photographic Centre will have 4,000 square feet of exhibition space, 6,500 square feet of classrooms and studios, plus a 3,000 square-foot Photo Shop that’ll be stocked with state-of-the-art equipment, print gallery, an extensive library and digital printers to make oversize prints, plus the nation’s first Leica Camera shop-in-shop retail location.

The Palm Beach Photographic Centre is located at
415 Clematis Street
in downtown West Palm Beach. For more information, please call
