“This Is Our Bound Brook” was presented by Bound Brook Cultural Arts Committee in conjunction with Bound Brook Revitalization Partnership as an effort to share what’s unique about the historic Somerset County borough as seen by those who live, work and visit there. 

The photo subject had to be located in or have occurred in Bound Brook, says Lawrence McCullough, downtown manager with Bound Brook Revitalization Partnership. “This is a community that has a lot of history but is also shaping quite a distinctive present and future.”

Bound Brook Council President and Cultural Arts Committee member Abel Gomez notes that a century ago, Bound Brook was home to one of the world’s most celebrated photographers, Margaret Bourke-White, and several gifted amateur lensmen such as Dr. Jonathan Pardoe and Elmer Schoonmaker, who had offices right on Main Street. 

"This Is Our Bound Brook" Photo Winners Announced“Bound Brook has just as many talented photographers today using all kinds of devices and formats,” says Gomez. “We were happy that folks came from all over New Jersey to document what they think is special about Bound Brook.” 

Bound Brook Cultural Arts Committee was created by borough council ordinance to promote the expression and appreciation of visual, literary and performing arts in Bound Brook. For information on upcoming Bound Brook cultural events, see www.downtownboundbrook.com.
