  7. Galleria Deptford is located in the Deptford Municipal Building at 1011 Cooper Street, Deptford, NJ. The on-going art installations are curated by Pauline Jonas, an arts maven who connects artists with opportunities. The current photography exhibition is by members of the Photographic Society of Philadelphia. Galleria Deptford doesn’t collect commissions, all artwork is insured, allowing artists to show their work in a heavily trafficked venue with all sales going directly through the artist. The current exhibit pays homage to the the Photographic Society of Philadelphia with more than twenty photographers sharing over sixty photographs. The exhibit was organized and curated by Photographic Society of Philadelphia member Jeff Stroud, but the Galleria Deptford staff does the heavy lifting and installs the show. All that the artists had to do was get their work to the venue and the good people at Galleria Deptford do the rest including providing the Artist Reception to be held Sunday, March 16th, 2:00 to 4:00 pm with light refreshments (no alcohol – it’s a municipal building).

  8. Imagine this : perhaps the most important street photographer of the twentieth century was a nanny who kept everything to herself. Nobody had ever seen her work and she was a complete unknown until the time of her death. For decades Vivian’s work hid in the shadows until decades later (in 2007), historical hobbyist John Maloof bought a box full of never developed negatives at a local auction for $380.

    Photographer Bob Bruhin has spent as much time in LOVE Park as anyone. Since June 2012, he’s been at work on a project called “LOVE in the Afternoon,” online at afternoon-love.com. He takes up to 500 photos each month in the park: of tourists, other photographers, passersby, and the men who hang out near the statue, charging to take tourists’ pictures.

    "Shooting [LOVE] over and over has made me love it more," he said.

    LOVE Park, he said, is like no other place in the city. He has a request for its renovation: “You get people from all different parts of the city, all over the world, all mingling and bumping into each other. Whatever happens here, they need to preserve and enhance that.”

    A passion for art, vintage railroads, and little-seen places has inspired a local photographer to create a dramatic exhibit of one of the most hidden of hidden gems in the heart of the city.

    Lensman Bob Bruhin’s “Secrets of the City Branch,” on display at Brewerytown’s High Point Cafe, offers documentary and artistic views of an old rail line through the Art Museum area and the Spring Garden section that some have seen as untapped potential.
