The Wasatch Camera Club is celebrating its 20th year anniversary with a one of a kind photography exhibit at all branches of the Salt Lake City Public Library. The exhibit will present about 48 photographs taken by club members.

Just as words express feelings, emotions and beauty, the same is true of light. Carefully composed and captured, light can elicit a spectrum of human response in a single image. The impact from a well-crafted photograph is truly the Language of Light.

Holding the belief that photographic prints are the noblest expression of the craft of photography, the club underscores its commitment by encouraging members to print, frame and hang their finest works. The Language of Light exhibit is evidence of the level of talent, the beauty of great print making and the joy of presentation through the careful selection of the club’s best works. The final juried images will be displayed in the six area library branches organized by the following key themes:

  • In Nature  |  Main Library, Lower Urban Room
  • Global Views  |  Anderson-Foothill
  • The Creative Angle |  Chapman
  • The Human Experience  |  Day-Riverside
  • In Details  |  Sprague
  • The Built World  |  Sweet


    Founded in 1994, the Wasatch Camera Club’s mission is to promote technical skill-building through lectures, workshops, field trips and critiques, as well as to develop an aesthetic view of the art of photography. Today the club has 260 members. The knowledge and experience gained through their association with the club helped many prepare to work professionally in the photographic community.
