Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter On view through August 4, 2018 Also on view: Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy This project is an extension of my examination of the family photo album. In “Becoming a Specter” I make images in an effort to describe the anxiety and psychological estrangement one experiences during times of political and social unrest. I think of this project as a form of aesthetic defiance. It is my goal to expand the perimeter of visual ephemera that might be considered for new iterations of the family album. - Daniel W.

    Philadelphia has 2,172,896 parking spaces. So how come you're still circling the block?
    There are few things Philadelphians like to complain about more than parking. There's not enough, some argue. There's too much, others contend. Finding a spot takes too long, or garages are too expensive. Some residents believe on-street permit prices should increase - even five or tenfold. Others say parking should be free.
