Peter Barberie, Curator of Photographs, Philadelphia Museum of Art
The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is excited to announce A Love Supreme, 2nd Annual Contemporary Photography Exhibition. This year’s title refers to the dramatic transformation in John Coltrane’s creative process and sound in his legendary recording. Moving away from jazz standards to a spiritual and instinctual way of making music, Coltrane forever changed his medium. In this spirit, today’s photographers are creating new visual languages, pushing the medium in unprecedented and unpredictable ways, forever changing how we define photography.
