Philly Photo Day 2013, part 1

For Philly Photo Day last month anyone and everyone was invited to take a picture in Philadelphia as part of a collective, composite portrait of our city. For the third year running Eyes on the Street is lucky enough to share some of our favorite shots of the city and life in it from this year's submissions.

We chose 40 Philly Photo Day submissions to feature on Eyes on the Street. Here's our first batch of 20:

You can see all 1561 photos in the Philly Photo Day exhibit  at 120 North 3rd Street until the end of the year. In previous years the exhibit has been held at the Crane Arts Building. But Sarah Stolfa, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center Executive Director, told me that this year's Old City location is an effort to make it easier for more people to visit the exhibit. On November's First Friday 500 people came through.

The opening reception is Thursday, November 14 at 6pm and the exhibit will stay up until December 28. 

New this year: You can also see satellite exhibitions featuring selections from Philly Photo Day at the Asian Arts Initiative, Commerce Square Media Wall, Fleisher Art Memorial, Parkway Central Free Library, Independence Visitor Center, Norcomm Community Center, and Philadelphia International Airport. Also stay tuned for 20 temporary murals at community partner sites and photos on 40 billboards around town, which will go up in December. The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center plans to post a map of these sites online soon.
