And here are our 2014 Philly Photo Day contributions. This one taken by my husband is a remnant of a sign located in the Lawndale section of Philadelphia.

And mine... a group of signs spanning the rooftop of several commercial buildings bordering the neighborhoods of Castor and Rhawnhurst.

Philadelphia is the 5th largest city in the country and a city of neighborhoods, over 200 (currently used) named neighborhoods.

To see more images of the city, its people and neighborhoods, check out the entire 2014 Philly Photo day exhibition here. Also look for a selection of work from the show to be erected on billboards around the city and in an outdoor exhibition at Dilworth Park in the spring (April-May 2015).

One City, One Day... looking forward to next October's "Philly Photo Day".

  1. I remember that Life Magazine did a similar project but it was for photographers around the world. There were some incredible photographs.

    Such a fun project.
