Lehigh Valley-based photographer, Edward Vatza has a keen eye for detail and the ability to capture mood, textures, and a very strong graphic presence in his work. This installation focuses on a segment of his Manhattan Project series, which depicts the personalities and attitudes of street people in lower New York City neighborhoods. Vatza achieves a comfort level with his subjects that result in rich conversations. The stories of the anonymous are a powerful context for these poignant images.
The exhibition program in the Bette and Nelson Pfundt Gallery is presented by Vivian Banta and Robert Field.
