Photographs of Kenya exhibit at Library

An exhibit of photographs from Kenya.

As part of its Black History Month programming, the Plainfield Public Library has mounted an exhibit of stunning photographs of the people and wildlife of Kenya.

The photography in the show was taken by Henry F. Kielblock, a North Plainfield native (born at Muhlenberg Hospital, he notes) who taught U.S. history and philosophy in the Piscataway Public Schools for 36 years.

Interested in photography since childhood, Mr. Kielblock has traveled and photographed throughout Kenya, Italy and Costa Rica, in addition to North America. His photography has won numerous awards and has appeared on magazine and book covers.

In retirement, Mr. Kielblock has been the Director of Scott's Mountain Hawk Watch since 2002 and is an associate naturalist with the New Jersey Audubon Society. He won the DAR's National Conservation Award in 2009.

The exhibit is in the Anne Louise Davis Gallery on the lower level through March 29 and may be viewed during library hours. The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
