Panel Discussion with Joseph V. Labolito and Jim MacMillan
Join us for a panel discussion with photographers Joseph V. Labolito and Jim MacMillan. Sarah Glover will moderate their discussion about the unique human experiences and fleeting moments in the city they photographed around Philadelphia from 1987 to 2023.
Joseph V. Labolito’s career in photography began in 1977. For the past 27 years he has worked as Senior Photographer for Temple University. Beyond his work for Temple, Labolito documented the areas where he grew up and the places he frequented, capturing a deeply personal and authentic perspective of Philadelphia.
Jim MacMillan is the Founder and Director of the Philadelphia Center for Gun Violence Reporting and its parent organization, the Initiative for Better Gun Violence Reporting, as well as Assistant Director of the Logan Center for Urban Investigative Reporting at Klein College. During his former career as a photojournalist, MacMillan spent 17 years with the Philadelphia Daily News and worked for The Associated Press in Boston and in Baghdad during the war in Iraq, for which his team was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
Glover is Vice President for News and Civic Dialogue at WHYY and a former photojournalist who held staff positions at the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.
Refreshments will be served. Following the presentation and a Q&A session, join us in the exhibit space to view the photographs.
