Event Description

A collaboration with poems by Randall Couch.

September 23
November 7, 2009

Italy is about sex, religion, and death (not necessarily in that order). And, like photography, about time, as you would expect from a country in which “modern” history begins in 1600. Italians’ attitude about these subjects is, to say the least, ambivalent and complicated, and it is this ambivalence that intrigues Katz and that he has tried to capture by juxtaposing images that reveal the ambiguities, contradictions, and contrasts in Italian life and culture.

Joel Katz has been a photographer since 1964, when he spent six weeks in Mississippi during “Freedom Summer.” He won the Rome prize from the American Academy in Rome in 2002 and has most recently exhibited his photography at Moore College of Art and Design, Temple University in Rome, and the Open Lens Gallery at the Gershman Y.

Katz teaches at Philadelphia University and the University of the Arts. He was elected an AIGA Philadelphia Fellow in 2002.
