Event Description

The Drexel Photography Program is very pleased to announce the Philadelphia launch of renowned photographer and Professor Andrea Modica's new photobook titled January 1. The book explores the Philadelphia tradition of the Mummers through portraits of participants in the brigade known as Wenches. This is the culmination of a 10-year project, made over 10 New Year’s days from 2009 -2018.

Please join us for a reception to celebrate the launch of January 1.

The beautifully crafted book was published by L’Artiere (Bentivoglio, Italy) in an edition of 700. The 64 pages contain 27 tritone black and white plates reproduced at the 10″ x 8″ size of Modica’s original platinum/palladium contact prints. The luxe black cover is printed with silver ink, $72.

In addition to Andrea Modica‘s luxurious book January 1, The Print Center is pleased to offer an exclusive limited edition book and print set in conjunction with the release. This is an incredible opportunity to collect an outstanding work of art as well as a piece of Philadelphia history and culture. The offer includes a signed book and a masterful 10″ x 8″ contact gelatin silver print from 10 artist’s proofs, which accompany the edition of 20, $575. This special edition is available through The Print Center Gallery Store for a preorder price of $500 until April 18th.
