Johns Island
A Moment in Time

In 2010, the Photography Club undertook an exciting Community Outreach project, honoring the history and people of Johns Island. Capturing the Island’s spirit just before incoming developers began making permanent changes. Hundreds of photographs were used to produce the video, Johns Island – A moment in Time. This twenty-minute narrative begins with the Island’s past, going back before the first English settlers arrived in around 1670. Copies of the video were donated to Johns Island residents, churches, schools, libraries, and Kiawah residents.  

 

A year later, the Photography Club published a popular coffee table book based on the video. Book sales were donated to various local charities on John Island plus copies of the video and book are in several Charleston Libraries.   The book is available for purchase HERE.
