The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce A Love Supreme, 2nd Annual Contemporary Photography Exhibition. The title refers to a canonical jazz album performed by John Coltrane in which he attempts to discover spirituality through musical creation. Much like the intentions of the album, the artists in this exhibition strive to discover a kinship with the world that surrounds them. Modes of photographic inquiry including portraiture, landscape and tableau are mixed with imagery that expresses a renewed interest in materiality and conceptualism. The result is a mini-survey offering varying modes of photographic thinking.
