Father and son joining each other in profession is an idyllically discussed concept occurring less and less frequently. Twenty-Two Gallery presents Bruce Murray Sr. and Jr in a true Philadelphian exhibit of Americana and yesteryear.

An exhibition of two generations of true American photographers, capturing America in beautiful black & white images spanning over 50 years.  The father & son duo both started their photojournalist careers in Philadelphia as press photographers.  Their archives of works are preserved by their son [and grandson], Shawn Murray.  Shawn, as a third generation photographer, prints their work for all to appreciate and cherish … as he does.  The subject matter of these timeless images range from Baseball legends in the 1920’s, Babe Ruth and Connie Mack… to a pie eating contest at a city street party in the 1950’s.  They evoke great memories and heart warming feelings…  Printing from the vintage large format negatives makes the clarity, richness,
depth-of-field & pure quality of these fine art photographs.
If your a fan of photography, baseball, history or Americana, then this show is a must see.The photographs also make wonderful unique giftsfor the holidays.

Opening November 14th, visitors to the gallery are sure to be privy to some special documentary style photography. If you can’t make the opening, your time to get in and visit is brief; the exhibition will conclude December 1st.
