“At 84 years old, he’s finally getting his due,” commented Norman Keyes, the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s director of communications.

Keyes was speaking of photographer Dave Heath, who had a heartbreaking childhood as an orphan in Philadelphia, and went on to be “celebrated in (his) day,” according to Keith F. Davis of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. 

Heath’s early-career black and white photography from the 1950s and 1960s is the subject of “Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath,” on view through Feb. 21 in the Art Museum’s ground floor Honickman and Berman Galleries.- Brian Bingaman
