See America through the lens of photographer John Troisi

Photographer John Troisi
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Award-winning local photographer John Troisi returns to the James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., for the next multimedia presentation in his popular “America Through the Lens” series.

The next program, “Classic Colorado,” will be presented at 7 p.m. Wednesday, August 9, and will feature a musical and voice accompaniment of high-quality photography images from Troisi’s trip to Colorado.

Troisi, a native of Pennsylvania, is a first-generation American. The art he creates is not on canvas. He has a natural ability to present existing beauty, captured through the lenses of his digital, full-frame cameras. Troisi has been photographing landscapes for the past 42 years, concentrating his efforts in the western United States and along the northern East Coast.

Troisi’s photography training stems from his study of perspective and composition. He has attended Leica Photo Workshops directed by master photographer Walter Heun of Germany. In 1986, Troisi won Honorable Mention in the Leica International Photo Contest in the category of Amateur Fine Arts. Locally he is an award-winning member of the Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs.

The program will be presented in the Lowry Room on the third floor of the Welch Children’s Wing. Registration is suggested, but not required. Visit to register or call 570-326-0536.

This program supports the PA Forward state initiative by providing social and civic literacy opportunities for learning and highlighting the transformative nature of public libraries within a community.

The James V. Brown Library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and 24/7 at
