A large print of my portrait of Cathy in Paterson is exhibited for the first time in an exhibition opening this week at the University of the Arts Gallery 1401 in Philadelphia and on view through December 7th.

According to the gallery's site: "Best in Show" is the annual collaborative effort between the Photography department at the University of the Arts and The Photo Review, an independent journal of photography founded it 1976.  This annual exhibition gives the public the opportunity to view the juried work featured in The Photo Review's 2012 competition issue.
