Opening Reception for "Napoli: A Photographic Exhibition" at the Italian American Museum

Friday, May 9th (6 PM to 8 PM)

The Italian American Museum cordially invites you to attend the opening reception for "Napoli: A Photographic Exhibition" by Janine Coyne 

Last year, Coyne visited Naples, staying in the ancient Spaccanapoli district, where she mingled with residents and photographed the vibrant street life. While traditionally working with film, she chose to shoot Napoli with a digital camera, and the resulting photographs reflect her ability to capture subjects in timeless moments. Fifteen from this series will be part of the IAM exhibit.

Coyne has included six large-scale prints whose rich colors and compositions depict the natural and majestic beauty of Naples. The remaining nine photographs show the raw, inner-city street life of a city that suffers from high unemployment and other urban woes.

Coyne’s works are in the permanent collections of The Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of the City of New York, The National Museum of Immigration at Ellis Island, and The Museum of Friends. She resides in Brooklyn and since 1986 has been a professor at Kingsborough Community College, where she teaches photography.
