Jeffrey Stockbridge: Kensington Blues

Jeffrey Stockbridge

Jeffrey Stockbridge

Photographer Jeffrey Stockbridge has been documenting the opioid crisis in the neighborhood of Kensington in North Philadelphia for the past 10 years. Kensington Blues, self-published in 2017, pairs large-format color photographs of men and women struggling to survive their addiction with audio transcripts and journal entries composed by the subjects themselves. This multi-year collaboration began as a personal project and evolved into a blog, book and exhibition. Featuring audio recordings, videos and photographs, Stockbridge will discuss how he approached his subject, the relationships he made and the changes happening in the neighborhood.

Digital Photography Certificate Capstone Exhibition

Pop Looking Out the Window

Digital Photo Certificate Capstone Exhibition
On View September 5-September 28

"Window into Pop's World"
by Sara Manzano-Díaz 

Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Sara Manzano-Díaz is an attorney, photographer, and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate whose current project focuses on personal narrative and documentary portraiture.

Window into Pop’s World is a collection of intimate photographs depicting a 97-year-old man—the artist’s father-in-law—and his everyday experiences as he transitions into widowhood after 67 years of marriage. Dreamlike images depict time passing, witnessed through an attentive lens. Universal themes of memory, cycles, rememberance, and aging arise through penetrating photographs of one man’s daily life.

Manzano-Díaz has spent her life advocating on behalf of working class families, veterans, women, and girls. She strives to continue her advocacy by using photography as a tool for visual storytelling and social impact. Manzano-Díaz aims to empower and uplift individuals by documenting their lives and experiences. She lives and works in Philadelphia.

Exhibition is free and open to the public.
