Gifts of Art presents Light Begins at 40: A Detroit Photographer Looks Back by Philip Dattilo

In a world beset with problems and heartache, for this retrospective, Philip Dattilo shares photographs of cheer, amusement and inspiration. A professional photographer since the 1970s, Dattilo searched through 40 years of his personal photographs as well as those for medical, architectural and industrial clients (including U-M). The search uncovered a gold mine of happy memories, suggesting “Life can sometimes be good.”  His work includes the photo booklet Enjoy Detroit, It’s Your City, a family photographic portrait for President Gerald Ford, and work on display in the permanent collection of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.
