August 6 to September 4, 2022, Friday, Saturday and Sunday Noon to 5pm

New Hope Arts is excited to present this contemporary exhibition of the documentary image to commemorate the legendary work of New Hope Photographer, Jack Rosen.

Documentary Photography is the theme of this exhibition. The documentary image is used to chronicle events, scenes or environments and historical events, signs of the times and everyday life. By definition the images avoid pictorial manipulation and enhancement. In contemporary photography both film images and digital images are appropriate. Applications for this exhibition are documentary subjects and are not restricted to Bucks County or regional themes, but inclusive and original view points.

This exhibition of contemporary documentary photography honors the work of Jack Rosen. New Hope Arts showcases Rosen's original photographs and create a walking map to illustrate his presence in the community. Visit Bucks County sponsored this exhibition with the interest in stimulating touring the original sites of Jack's  photographs throughout the Borough of New Hope.

 Jack Rosen 1923- 2006 was a New Hope resident who is honored in this exhibition. His documentation of life in New Hope and Bucks County is recognized for capturing the spirit of the times, especially in the 1970s through early 2000’s.
