Andrea Modica will present work from her decades-long career as a photographer. Known for her exclusive use of an 8×10-inch view camera and platinum prints, Modica has created long-term projects on wide ranging subjects, including: minor league baseball players, a fifteen-year portrait of a girl from Upstate New York, a family-run slaughterhouse in Colorado, human skulls found on the grounds of a mental hospital, high school best friends, a horse clinic in Italy, and, most recently, participants in the January 1 Mummer’s Day Parade in South Philadelphia.
Modica’s photographs have been featured in many magazines, including the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker, Newsweek, and American Photo.
