August 25, 2016, Jersey City, NJ – The entire Hudson County community is invited to view an exhibit of photos by the lifestyle photographer and longtime Hudson County resident Mickey Mathis. The exhibit is titled “Mickey Mathis: World Trade Views.”

The exhibit may be viewed through Friday, September 30 at the Hudson County Community College Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery. The Gallery is located on the top floor of the College’s Library Building at 71 Sip Avenue, just steps away from the Journal Square PATH Transportation Center in Jersey City.

Curated by Hudson County Community College Cultural Affairs Director Michelle Vitale, the “Mickey Mathis: World Trade Views” exhibit features views of the Twin Towers and the newly built World Trade Center as captured by Mr. Mathis from the western shore of the Hudson River over the course of 20 years. The photos, juxtaposed with the unobstructed views of the new Freedom Tower from the Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery, add to the must-see value of this exhibit in commemoration of the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy.

Mr. Mathis is a Jersey City resident and freelance photographer who studied at the International Center for Photography in New York City.

The Benjamin J. Dineen, III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (It is closed on Sundays.)
