Philip A Dente:
URBAN LANDSCAPES - NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA
I live in Northeastern Pennsylvania and have been photographing for about 30 years.
For me, photography will always be an exciting journey. Whether it be the physical trek from place to place or a spiritual pilgrimage, the paths taken ultimately lead to new discoveries and expanded awareness. It is a journey that continues to bring me home. Not in the geographical sense but rather in the context of vision and emotions. It is an infinite journey where the end becomes yet another beginning.
With my exploration of the urban landscape I try to demonstrate the feeling of a continual loss of the past through the disruptions of the present.
Among the last vestiges of the familiar there still remains a certain elegance that I find extraordinary.
