For the next First Friday in Manayunk, we are happy to feature artist Mary Agnes Williams. We are hosting a reception to launch the month-long showing of Mary Agnes’s gorgeous pin-hole photography. All photographs will be available to purchase. Refreshments will be provided. Come on out and support local talent!
Pinhole photography appeals to me because it is simple and direct (no lens or view finder), but can yield complex images. Pinhole allows me to explore and create mystery and ambiguity – in many of my photographs the images appear to be emerging from, or about to enter, another time or place. I have used pinhole cameras exclusively for 20 years, whether traveling throughout the South, to Italy, or closer to home, in Manayunk, where the iconic bridge over the Schuylkill River has been a constant source of inspiration and pleasure.
