SAVERY GALLERY presents Kensington Blues, the recently completed body of work by Philadelphiabased artist Jeffrey Stockbridge, in an upcoming exhibition on view May 5th - June 2nd 2017.
There will be a reception for the artist and book signing on Friday, May 5th starting at 5pm. Jeffrey Stockbridge’s first solo exhibition at the gallery coincides with the publication of his book by the same name, and features several large format color photographs (shot with a 4x5 film camera) of men and women caught in the grip of drug addiction and prostitution along Kensington Avenue in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition to his large framed works, Stockbridge has created a special installation for the exhibition that reveals the magnitude of his five year long documentary project. Comprised of 125 8x10 inch photographs, audio recordings, and written transcripts of interviews he conducted with his subjects, Stockbridge brings to light the personal stories behind his haunting images.
