Hannah Price: Blueprint

  • Silver Eye Center for Photography 4808 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15224 United States (map)

Acclaimed Philadelphia based photographer Hannah Price is working to create a new body of work through a series of residencies in Pittsburgh. These photographs and videos explore the history and present-day lives of African American communities in Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania. In her initial trip to Pittsburgh, Price toured several communities that intrigued her, including The Hill District, Wilkinsburg, East Liberty, and Uptown--exploring the places, people, and histories that make up these neighborhoods. 

A photographic artist and filmmaker, Price is primarily interested in documenting relationships, race and gender politics, social perception, and misperception. Price is internationally known for her project City of Brotherly Love (2009-2012), a series of photographic portraits of the men who catcalled her on the streets of Philadelphia. Price graduated from the Yale School of Art with an MFA in 2014, receiving the Richard Benson Prize for excellence in photography. Over the past six years, Price's photographs have been displayed in several cities across the United States, with many residing in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
