November 2017 (archived post)

I had a fantastic trip to the States in early November: The Home Front, in an edited version, was showing at the Sol Mednick Gallery, University of the Arts, Philadelphia. I went over for the opening, to give a guest lecture & gallery talk and had very interesting meetings with several of the students. It was brilliant seeing Anne Massoni again, the Photography programme director/artist, and curator of this show, & I enjoyed meeting all her colleagues. Many thanks to Anne for all her hard work printing the work in Philadelphia and also to Harris Fogel, director of the gallery, for all the organisation & publicity. Thanks to Harris for the photographs below – all of these are his copyright. Many of the people featured in the gallery shots are prize-winning photographers who had been selected for the close-by Gallery 1401 exhibition “The Photo Review: Best of Show”. [The Photo Review, founded in 1976, is a independent journal of photography].
