With all the Welcome America festivities that are taking place in the area over the next couple weeks, smaller events are sure to get lost in the shuffle. However, don’t let Albert Yee’s new photography show, “Hands That Feed Us” be one of the things that gets misplaced in a heap of other happenings.
Yee is a Philadelphia-area photographer who has spent the last few years deeply entwined in the local food scene (thanks to his work with Reading Terminal Market’s Fair Food Farmstand). This show will features photographs of local farms, farmers, dairies and cheesemakers, and is a must-see for anyone who wants to expand their understanding of just where the food we eat comes from.
This show is being hosted by Gravy Studio & Gallery, which is located on Sepviva, between Susquehanna and Dauphin in Fishtown. The photos will be up all month, with a kick-off reception being held on Friday, July 1 (First Friday) from 6:30 – 10 p.m. The Fair Food Farmstand and Flying Monkey Bakery are both donating snacks, so there should be plenty of inspiration for both the mind and the belly.
Hands That Feed Us
