THE BEEF: BEFORE BECOMING OUR BEST-BEARDED PRESIDENT, HONEST ABE WAS KNOWN FOR HIS EPIC BUTCHERING SKILLS.
MEAT AMERICA is not just a photo story by renowned photographer Dominic Episcopo. Meat America is a state of mind, an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America's spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity. Surprising, humorous and often thought provoking, this exhibition celebrates our collective American appetite of insurmountable odds, limitless aspiration, and immeasurable success. Though, some may just see it just as a bunch of states, presidents and American icons shaped out of animal products. Which is also fine with us.

Dominic Episcopo is one of Philadelphia's most reputable photographers. His career spans over 20 plus years of experience. During which, he has built a viable reputation in several major markets on being just as professional as he is creative.
Dominic made his way to Philadelphia via North Jersey to attend the University of the Arts where he obtained his degree in photography. His interest in the art of photography was sparked by his love of music… most notably by the edgy imagery used in publications such as Rolling Stone magazine.
Since those early days, Dominic's work has been seen in a variety of national magazines and campaigns as well as several galleries across the country. His versatile and wide ranging portfolio encompasses vast extremes of everyday life – jumping between the worlds of high fashion, low-fi indie musicians and corporate advertising campaigns.
Dominic's style is very evident in his personal life as well. He and his family currently reside in a 150 year old church in Philadelphia that also serves as his studio. This incredible property was recently made green by adding solar panels to the roof– making it the oldest solar building in the country. In true Dominic fashion, he continues to sidestep the norm and see the beauty in combining both old and new… his talent lies in finding that perfect balance.
