St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is proud to invite you to enter our juried photography show, “Hidden Nature: Finding Beauty in the Streets of Philadelphia,” in our outdoor gallery along Pine Street in October 2018. Selected work will be printed 24″ x 24″ and mounted to a brick wall along Pine Street, viewable to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The exhibit will run from Sunday, October 7 through November 18, 2018. Both novice and experienced photographers are encouraged to enter.
The beauty of nature isn’t only found in far-away places. It is right here in Philadelphia, living beside us, in harmony with us. It is in a beautiful flower growing in a brick alleyway, the sun reflecting off a park water fountain, or a pigeon strutting around Center City. For this open-air photography exhibit, we are seeking artwork that shows the surprising fragility, resilience, and marvel of nature here among us in the City of Philadelphia. Photographs should inspire passersby to imagine how we might live differently, or tread more lightly, upon our beautiful blue-green planet. “Hidden Nature” will call us to reframe our relationship with the world around us—to view it with respect, appreciation, and delight.
