The exhibit examines the work of Robert Halvey, who served as a photographer for the Catholic Standard and Times from 1935-1999. These images capture presidents from popes as well as everyday participants in Philadelphia Catholic life. Due to his long career, we have half a century worth of documenting Catholic Philadelphia, especially moments of major celebrations and events. Examining these milestone moments through the decades reveals the history of both the city and the religious life within it.
