Photo by Tina Barney

Please join the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center for our first annual Patron Party featuring a lecture and book signing with world-renowned photographer Tina Barney.  This event takes place on Wednesday, October 19th at 6 pm.  The lecture is open to the public for a suggested donation of $5.    

Tina Barney, born in 1945 in New York, began her career by photographing those closest to her, many of whom are New England socialites.  Part candid, part tableau, Barney’s large-scale photographs provide a visually in-depth documentation of upper class lifestyle and the complexities of interpersonal relationships.
