“Philadelphia Lensmen”

The photography of

Bruce Murray Sr. & Bruce Murray Jr.

An exhibition of two generations of true American photographers, capturing America in beautiful black & white images spanning over 50 years.  The father & son duo both started their photojournalist careers in Philadelphia as press photographers.  Their archives of works are preserved by their son [and grandson], Shawn Murray.  Shawn, as a third generation photographer, prints their work for all to appreciate and cherish.  The subject matter of these timeless images range from baseball legends in the 1920's, Babe Ruth and Connie Mack… to a pie eating contest at a city street party in the 1950's.  They evoke great memories and heart warming feelings…  Printing from the vintage large format negatives creates the clarity, richness, depth of field and pure quality of these fine art photographs.  If you’re a fan of photography, baseball, history or Americana, then this show is a must see.  

The photographs also make wonderful unique gifts for the holidays.
