Best Of The Year
Second Annual Show at the PL130 Gallery at PhotoLounge
November 28, 2022 - January 14, 2023
Open House/Reception December 9th from 6-9pm
Best of the Year is our annual photography show that highlights some of the best photos the community has taken this year. The show is organized around one of our weekly photo contests that we host on Instagram. Just as we did last year, in early October we announced the theme “best of the year'' and received an incredible number of photo submissions. The quality and creativity behind each photograph exceeded our expectations, exemplifying the overwhelming talent within the Philly photo community. We are so excited to present our second annual Best of the Year show, and invite you to reflect on this past year as you immerse yourself in this inspiring collection of photographs.

The PL130 Gallery at PhotoLounge opened in 2021 with a mission to raise the voices of a diverse photo community and to show important new work by emerging photographers. For the sake of equity, the gallery eschewed any costs associated with entering or exhibiting shows. Rather, costs are sponsored entirely by an active Film Photography Club where members pay $8 in monthly dues to support art. All work is hung unframed and printed by PhotoLounge on museum quality substrates.
