The Natural World

We invite any artist whose work relates to the theme The Natural World


The 20/20 Photo Festival is a month-long celebration of photography in all of its forms. Organized by local Philadelphia photography organizations and centered around the theme The Natural World, the festival will bring together a wide range of perspectives from emerging and established photographers from Philadelphia and beyond.

We invite any artist whose work relates to the theme The Natural World to submit photographic artwork to be selected by photographer & curator Ryan Stand Greenberg, Senior Director of Creative Development & Partnerships at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. Since 2011, he has developed countless collaborative projects and programs in the public realm alongside artists, scholars, foundations and communities. Combining the power of creative expression, storytelling, research and participation his projects nurture connections between people, public histories, and our environment(s). His work has been showcased at numerous cultural institutions as well as historic sites, neighborhoods, gardens, transit stations, rivers, cemeteries, and storefronts.


Chosen works by curator will be installed at Cherry Street Pier exhibition.
