Book Launch and Signing with Daniel Traub
Tuesday, December 16, 2014; 6:00 pm, Admission is FREE
RSVP on Facebook | www.danieltraub.net
Join us for a conversation between Daniel Traub and The Print Center's Jensen Bryan Curator, John Caperton, followed by a book signing. North Philadelphia, published by Kehrer Verlag, offers a compelling glimpse into an urban area that is emblematic of many such regions throughout the United States, hovering between decay and possibility. A body of work Traub made between 2008 and 2013, North Philadelphia combines images of dilapidated homes, vacant lots, and desolate street corners with portraits of the neighborhood's residents to present a multifaceted look at the landscape and people of North Philadelphia. Many of these images were included in Traub's solo show Lots at The Print Center in 2011.
Conversation: 6:00 - 6:45pm
Book Signing and Reception: 6:45 - 7:30pm
From a review by Adam Bell in Photo-eye: "Daniel Traub's North Philadelphia is not only a portrait of this often misunderstood neighborhood, but it is also a deeply personal exploration of a community Traub has long known and loved... Traub does not mask the difficulties of the area, but the work is not without hope or dignity... formally beautiful and elegantly conceived."
