Tomorrow is the last day for a special exhibit taken from the Woodmere Museum treasure trove of over 100 prints created by famed Philadelphia photographer Severo Antonelli.

We were impressed with the balcony presentation of the exhibit which sweeps the 3rd floor curved walls of the Woodmere. The commercial and fine art photos span a number of years with stylistic consistency.

The print quality is excellent allowing for luminous treatment of the light shaping employed by Antonelli. Certainly, reminding us of the excellent Edward Steichen exhibit at ICP in New York last year. See Steichen at ICP 2009.

While at the Woodmere make sure to view the Emmet Gowen photo series “Ground Zero” at their Triennial of Contemporary Photography.

The Woodmere Museum is located in Chestnut Hill,Philadelphia. The locale and quaint town are worth a Sunday drive.
