Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath
Photographer Dave Heath began his life more than 80 years ago right here in Philadelphia, and has come full circle with an in-depth exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath runs through February 21, 2016, and marks the very first time all of the images from Heath’s lauded book A Dialogue with Solitude are displayed together in a museum within the United States. The exhibition covers Heath’s work from the 1940s through the 1960s, and follows his whereabouts — beginning in Philadelphia, traversing the country and serving in Korea as a part of the U.S. Army, and later moving to New York City before settling in Toronto.
