The Photography of Justin Scalera

Lower Gallery

Sunday, April 6 – Saturday, April 26
Opening Reception: Sunday, April 6, 1 to 4 p.m.

Justin Scalera

Justin Scalera is a Junior at Watchung Hills Regional High School and an aspiring photographer.

After joining the photography club in middle school, Justin really began to focus on his love of taking pictures. No matter where he went, he would have his camera ready to shoot whatever inspired him. Most of his photographs were taken locally until Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey shore.

Justin Scalera

Justin’s family had recently purchased a home at the shore and when the storm hit, they had no idea what would be left in the aftermath. When permitted to reenter the barrier island, Justin came along with his camera. He took pictures from Point Pleasant to Seaside Heights. The devastation was heart breaking.

Justin decided to create a book of these images and to dedicate a portion of the profits to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. So far he has donated $9000 to various organizations at the Jersey Shore.

Many of these photos are showcased at the Watchung Arts Center along with some of his other work.

Justin will graduate from Watchung Hills next year and is planning to continue to develop his photography and business skills in college.
