Photography at Phillips' Mill

Phillips’ Mill Photo was established in 1991 to celebrate and promote the fine art of photography. The program centers around two shows held at the Mill each spring—the prestigious Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition, followed by the "Not Your Run of the Mill" Photo Committee Show for members—in addition to occasional workshops and lectures. Behind the scenes and in between shows, members promote each other's work and publish an extensive online magazine to keep the creative energy going all year round.

Phillips' Mill PHOTOZINE

Phillips’ Mill Photo also publishes a richly illustrated online magazine twice a year called Phillips’ Mill Photozine. The publication, edited by Nora Odendahl, is devoted to showcasing work by members of the Phillips’ Mill Photo Committee, reporting on members’ projects and accomplishments, and presenting other content of special interest to photographers. Each issue includes a central feature with a specific photographic theme.

The Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition kicks off a month-long celebration of the fine art of photography. The Photography Program at Phillips’ Mill centers around the exhibition, although it also includes workshops, lectures and roundtable discussions. The exhibition is widely regarded as the premier juried photography exhibition in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

This year’s exhibition will be judged by Thom Goertel, a Washington, D.C.-based photographer and multimedia producer.

Every spring, the talented photographic artists and members who volunteer their time every year to produce the annual Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition, our juried photo show, are offered the chance to share their personal imagery for the Not Your Run of the Mill Photo Committee Show. Each artist is given the freedom to present a body of work that represents their vision. The results are inspiring!

Phillips’ Mill Photo was established to celebrate and promote the fine art of photography over three decades ago. The program centers around two shows held at the Mill each spring—the prestigious Phillips’ Mill Photographic Exhibition with distinguished photographers serving as jurors, followed by the "Not Your Run of the Mill" Photo Committee Show. In addition, Mill Photo hosts occasional workshops and lectures.

The Phillips’ Mill Photography program reflects both longstanding tradition and recent innovation. Since its inception in 1993, the juried Photographic Exhibition has gained a national and international following. In 2020, the program added its annual Photo Committee members’ show with a special-assignment section. The Mill Photo newsletter, Photozine, has become a semiannual journal that promotes the work and accomplishments of Mill Photo members.

In the same manner, the Phillips’ Mill Photo Committee is a blend of seasoned veterans and energetic newcomers. Leadership has reflected the former: the co-founders of the program, Spencer Saunders and Peter Redman, served as committee chairs for more than a decade with other experienced committee members including Sue Ann Rainey, Claudia Davis, Dafydd Jones, and most recently, Maria Dreyer, serving as chairs of the annual juried Photographic Exhibition. With over 1,000 submissions submitted annually from across the nation and even the world, the juried exhibition has become a respected signature program at Phillips’ Mill.
