Oh, Snap!

Oh, Snap! is a monthly lecture and workshop series that provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment in which to learn about photography and artistic practice. Oh, Snap! is a trans-inclusive space that welcomes all women and gender-nonconforming people.

Oh, Snap! brings together people of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Lectures and workshops are curated in conjunction with the interests of its participants. Photography provides a starting point, but the conversations sparked by Oh, Snap! are interdisciplinary and deep. No experience with photography is required; all participants need is an interest in the medium and a willingness to connect with other people who are passionate about the arts. Please contact coordinator Lori Waselchuk with any questions at lori@philaphotoarts.org.

Oh, Snap! meets on the third Saturday of each month, from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. Join our Oh, Snap! Facebook group for sharing and updates.

May 16 · Danna Singer

Danna Singer, an assignment photographer and fine artist, will present pieces from several projects and discuss her work as an editor. Danna’s work depicts the struggle of working class Americans and explores the social ramifications of economic equality. “I hope that my work communicates the weight and depth of the psychological damage that exists when one is trapped in cycles that lack opportunity and possibility,” Danna says. “I want my pictures to show the destructiveness of classism, the claustrophobia of these places and the grace that can be expressed in spite of it all.”

Danna’s photographs were selected for the Best New Yorker Photography and The New York Times Year in Pictures in 2019. She is a 2020 Guggenheim Fellow, and has been published in Der Spiegel, the ACLU, and Lens Culture, among others.
