Harvey Benge at Diplomat Gallery, Philadelphia, PA

Diplomat is a gallery in Philadelphia, PA, that showcases the work of international artists working in the medium of photography. Each month the gallery exhibits either a solo or group exhibition featuring artist(s) from one specific country.
Working with gallery director Chad Muthard, a show of my work, running through May, has been curated under the New Zealand banner.

Chad has this to say about the show:
Diplomat is pleased to announce a curatorial collaboration between Harvey Benge and myself to bring you and your loved ones To New Zealand, a solo exhibition featuring twenty-six photographs from eight different bodies of work.
It’s simple, but then again complex. It’s logical, yet at the same time utterly confusing. It’s here today, gone tomorrow, and simultaneously never ending. It’s having the courage to attempt to understand or care for another individual and empathize with the good, the bad, & the ugly.

The opening reception will take place Friday, May 11th from 6-9pm with the exhibition itself running until June 4th, 2012.
