GALLERY BIO

Ubuntu Fine Art Gallery is Philadelphia's first and only fine art photography gallery of a single artist's work. Owned and curated by Steven CW Taylor, Ubuntu Fine Art creates a pristine space for public consumption of the artists' work, coupled with education on how the art is produced, and candid conversations that the gallery facilitates.

Ubuntu Fine Art serves to transplant visitors to the place and time of the image they are viewing. "If you have never been to Glacier National Park in Montana or been on Safari in Lake-Nakuru National Park in Kenya, all one needs to do is come to Ubuntu Fine Art”. The art is showcased through museum-quality photographic prints that will maintain pristine conditions for 100+ years with proper care.

Housed in the former Cunningham Piano Company building, the gallery's timeless collections and direct connection to Germantown silhouettes Fine Art Photography's future to the very distinct tune of

The Time Thief.
