JOANN GRECO

Philadelphia Style - - Without Whom -

Joann Greco writes on fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple and ideas in de­sign, ar­chi­tec­ture, ur­ban plan­ning, and the arts from her home in Bella Vista. A fre­quent con­trib­u­tor to Philadel­phia Style, her ar­ti­cles have ap­peared ev­ery­where from Art & An­tiques to The Wash­ing­ton Post. In this edi­tion, Greco ex­plored the An­drew Wyeth Ex­hibit at Brandywine Con­ser­vancy on page 72.

Fa­vorite piece of art? “I’ve writ­ten about art for 25 years, so there have been many, many pieces that have im­pressed me. Of­ten, these have been pho­to­graphs—i think of ur­ban chron­i­clers like Weegee, Eu­gene At­get, and Berenice Ab­bott who cap­ture the so-called ‘de­ci­sive mo­ments’ of life in big cities like Paris and New York. These glimpses of the past have both a fa­mil­iar­ity and an ex­otic­ness to them, and that’s al­ways an in­ter­est­ing—and im­pact­ful— com­bi­na­tion.”
