The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is proud to announce the exhibitions and opening receptions of Teen Photo (2016 – 2017), PPAC’s free after school teaching program and our biggest year to date. Exploring the creative possibilities of digital photography, students from area schools had the opportunity to develop their own artistic style, while learning to use digital equipment at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. The student photographers spent nine months learning and discovering the medium through their own lens.
For the first time in PPAC’s history we will have two consecutive exhibitions featuring the work of over 60 Philadelphia teens.
This year’s Advanced Teen Photo exhibition,A Romantic Youth, includes the work of 19 young artists: Abraham Cassis, Alexus Yiv, Ameera Polk, Avital Brodski, Brittany Moore, Danielle DiAmico, Inez Oliveras, Leila Lorenze, Lemicha Bracey, Marquis Bennett, Nathalie Adrien, Oliwia Paszkowska, Sabine Ostinvil, Selena Ortiz, Sophie Lubin, Souhanda Mohamed, Summer Blackwell, Tyteana Gutzmore, and Wesley Midgett.
