I’m Going to Love You Anyway”
John Murphy, 2011
Archival Pigment Print, Hand-Finished Frame
31" W x 35" H

John Murphy’s limited-edition photographs start in his studio, where he stages the fantastical diorama-esque scenes for which he’s become known. He houses the images in his trademark ornate, color-saturated frames. There’s something very Philadelphian about the resulting mix of vintage and modern — of fuddy-duddy ornament and ethereal abstraction. He hand-finishes his pieces with a spray enamel and heat process to seal in the gloss and whimsy. CT
