has a special photography exhibit planned, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, which sank April 15, 1912.
Through the month of April the gallery will show “Titanic: A Century To Remember” by Philip Dattilo. The exhibit revolves around present-day photographs that depict scenes related to R.M.S. Titanic.
Dattilo has been fascinated by the Titanic since elementary school, and is a longtime member of the Titanic Historical Society. His photos document his travels to sites and monuments associated with the ocean liner, and the exhibit includes historic photographs of the ship.
Dattilo is from Plymouth, and has worked as a professional photographer for more than 30 years. His photographs are on permanent display at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills; the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor; and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. His work also has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Business Week and U.S. News and World Report.
The exhibit opens with an artist’s reception from 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 6, during Northville’s First Friday Experience.
