In years past, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) has only displayed the work of one photographer during its Annual Contemporary Photography Competition and Exhibition. Not this year.

After receiving 180 submissions, PPAC has decided to feature photography from two artists whose bodies of work run along the concurrent themes of race and immigration:

Both explore identity and the ways in which identities are defined and perceived.

“My photographs were taken during a time people consider to be the most menacing; during the dark night and of those who blend in with it,” said Price in a statement. “My portraits are of those who are haunted by this visual association. A blackness that may never die off.”

The exhibition opens up Dec. 8 and runs through February 25.
