The Light Room, Philadelphia's only photography co-op, will once again have its annual group exhibition, featuring a variety of mediums and subject matter by nine local photographers.
"This show highlights how eclectic photography can be," says Light Room member Erin Yard. Photos of America's majestic Southwest as well as Italy's alluring Abruzzo region juxtapose the gritty black-and-white images of one of Philadelphia's most infamous neighborhoods. Other pieces attempt to capture that “decisive moment” through street photography. There are, in addition, a series of appropriated NASA photos of the sun, which were digitally altered and mounted on gold leaf. "This show," Yard adds, "truly showcases some of Philadelphia's finest photographers and their work."
