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. I am inviting fellow park-visitors to take photographs of the physical elements that draw them to the space, and then I am uploading their images to this site. Ultimately, Photodelphia encourages the public to reflect on the built environment.
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.
