Devastated

Vincent D. Feldman at PSoPVincent D. Feldman, Dignity for the Devastated, Photographic Society of Philadelphia at The Plastic Club, 247 South Camac Street, Philadelphia, Tuesday, September 16th at 7:00pm, Guests are welcome.

Vincent D. Feldman author of City Abandoned: Charting the Loss of Civic Institutions in Philadelphia speaks about his photography at the monthly membership meeting of the Photographic Society of Philadelphia at The Plastic Club.

Vincent D. Feldman, a lifelong resident of Philadelphia, has been photographing architecture and the urban landscape for three decades. In the early 1990s his photography came to concentrate on the conflicts and questions that often surround historic buildings in Philadelphia. Feldman’s photography helps uncover the stories attached to buildings, thus revealing the nature of the societies in which these structures were built—and then neglected.

Feldman received a Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 2001. His work is held in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and in museums and private collections internationally. He is a Master Lecturer in photography at the University of the Arts.” – Vincent D. Feldman website

“The Photographic Society of Philadelphia is the oldest active photography society in the country. We have been looking at the world through the camera lens since 1860!”

Since 1897, The Plastic Club has been devoted to the promotion and preservation of the visual (plastic) arts in Philadelphia. The busy gallery schedule offers several annual exhibitions for members and non-members, as well as invited artists in solo and group exhibitions. Members include well-known Philadelphia artists.”

The Photographic Society of Philadelphia will be presenting their annual members exhibition at The Plastic Club in October 2014. 

Opening Reception: Sunday October 5, 2014 1 to 5pm

Additional Receptions:

  • Sunday October 12, 2014 1:00 to 5:00pm
