The photos on this blog are your answers to that question.
This project explores how residents of and visitors to Philadelphia conceive of its public spaces. Over the course of the 2011-2012 academic year, I am visiting public spaces throughout the city to distribute disposable cameras and engage participants in the project. All of the photographs are uploaded to this page, and selected photographs are featured in small, local public exhibits in cafes and libraries throughout the city. Ultimately, Photodelphia is meant to engage the public in a dialogue concerning spatial awareness.
This project is generously funded by the Elisha-Bolton Foundation through the Bolton Senior Award in the Growth and Structure of Cities department at Bryn Mawr College.
