The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce their upcoming exhibition, The Greater Area, opening on September 6th. The exhibition features the work of Gregory Halpern, Caitlin Teal Price, and Will Steacy. Curated by Sarah Stolfa and Christopher Gianunzio.
The Greater Area depicts contemporary cities as physical and psychological spaces fraught with solitude and caught in the midst of transformation.
The show also highlights photography’s unique capacity to transform the setting of the story, in this case the backdrop of the American city, into the focus of the work itself. The collected works utilize a variety of stylistic approaches that draw upon the histories of both landscape and portraiture photography. The result is an exhibition that combines elements of the city that are simultaneously overlooked and ignored.
The show opens September 6th, with a reception on Thursday, September 8th, from 6 pm – 9 pm; and runs until October 29th.
Gregory Halpern has his 3rd book coming out this fall titled, A. The book leads us on a ramble through the brilliant and ruined streets of the United States Rust Belt. The cast of characters, both human and animal, are portrayed with compassion and respect by this native son of Buffalo.
Caitlin Teal Price currently has work up at Gallery 339 in the About Face exhibition, running now until September 10th.
Stay tuned for more information, and don’t miss A Love Supreme before it closes on August 27th.
