Featured Photographers

Genevieve Coutroubis

A documentary photographer and ethnographer, Coutroubis received her Bachelor of Science in Photojournalism from Boston University, and later earned a Master of Science in Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Coutroubis has been documenting Greece since 1995. Several years ago, Coutroubis departed from her black and white images of Greece and began shooting color with a Holga camera. Her "Greece" body of work captures the nation's diversity and beauty as she experiences it.

Coutroubis has exhibited extensively locally, nationally and internationally. She was recognized by the National Museum for Women in the Arts when Susan Fisher Sterling invited her to participate in Women to Watch: Photography in Philadelphia. Genevieve’s work also appears in numerous national and international collections including SEI’s West Collection.

Tom Maher

Maher is a longtime resident of Philadelphia with a keen eye for artistic value in every corner of the city. His unaltered photography maintains an abstract feel, sharing Maher’s perspective of the city. 

Through his use of angles and his sense for contrasting imagery and color schemes, Maher can flesh an old ship, a storefront, or even a SEPTA train out into striking pieces of photography that go beyond identification or definition.

With over 50 years of experience in photography, Maher's works offer a sense of maturity with a specific approach. You can see more of his work at his website below:

Ron Wood

A self-taught photographer with a focus on nature, Wood has been living in Philadelphia for the last seven years, developing a keen appreciation for the concrete jungle. 

Wood has found organic beauty blooming between all of the urban development, his work dialing into the often-overlooked details in the many parks and green spaces throughout the city. Through the use of extreme close-ups and depth of field shots, his images bring those details into focus for all to see.

Utilizing a macro-lens, his works will open your eyes to how connected the city remains to its roots in nature and make you look a little closer on your next walk through Philadelphia.

Lynnette Mager Wynn

An alumni of the University of the Arts, Mager Wynn worked as an art therapist while pursuing graduate work at Hahnemann University and The University of New Mexico before pursuing commercial photography full time. 

Presenting "The Tank Series," Mager Wynn uses color, atmosphere and gesture to explore issues of illusion, assumption, absence and solitude.

These works stem from her training in art therapy which works into her art through themes of isolation, depth and contemplation. Mager Wynn is a former fellow at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, a Leeway Foundation grant recipient, and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grant recipient. 

She currently is Director of Photography for an auction house in Lambertville, New Jersey and lives in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania.
