Thomas Edison's Black Maria Studio

Thomas Edison’s Black Maria Studio

CRANFORD—Photographer, author, and publisher Walter Choroszewski will celebrate New Jersey’s historic contributions to American cinema and television—from Edison’s Black Maria Studio to the many Jersey-born artists who starred on the big and little screens—on Monday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center. The Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Avenue.

Choroszewski will showcase New Jersey’s silent film era, as well as the state’s recent popularity in movies and reality TV. Choroszewki’s first major assignment as a photographer came in 1980 when he was commissioned by a book publisher to do a photo essay on New Jersey. New Jersey, A Scenic Discovery was published in 1981 and established his photographic identity and lifelong link to the Garden State. He was the primary photographer of the New Jersey state tourism campaigns in the 1980s and 1990s, and he continues to supply the state with photos. In 1985,  Choroszewski started Aesthetic Press, which specializes in publishing regional books and calendars. He has photographed and produced 17 photographic books and numerous wall calendars. Choroszewski is also an award-winning graphic designer.

Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. For more information about library programs, go to the library Web page at and click on the Events & Programs tab.
