“Untitled Philadelphia, (White Man wearing a black mask) Tim Higgins 1980s”
Santa Bannon Gallery Bethlehem, PA
Philadelphia Photographers 1975-1985
The exhibit sets its viewfinder on a dynamic pre-digital period that represented a collaborative network rich with ideas and bounding with creativity — a democratic inclusivity and accessibility between emerging photographers and those who were well known. A unique and influential community of galleries, organizations, and institutions supported and nurtured photographers of the time and successfully brought awareness to the importance of collecting and further elevated the status of photography as fine art.
These artists further contributed to the history of the medium by developing art programs and becoming professors at colleges and universities regionally and throughout the country. Others became museum directors, curators, art dealers, major collectors, and patrons.
