Nearly 900 Photo Day prints to be displayed at opening night exhibit

    Thursday is the opening night for the Philly Photo Day exhibit after the Photo Arts Center spent the last week sorting through submissions.

    “After sorting through duplicates and people who submitted more than one image, we printed 886 photos,” Philly Photo Arts Center’s Julie Taylor tells NewsWorks.

    Taylor told us last week more than 900 photos had been submitted after the Oct. 28 one-day photo opp encouraging people to take a photo of anything in Philadelphia. Participants had three days to submit their shots — one per person.

     

    Photos will be displayed Thursday night at the Crane Arts Building in North Philly from 6 to 9 p.m., when visitors can browse and buy reprints. After that, viewing times will be Tuesdays through Thursdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Fridays through Sundays from noon to 6 p.m., through Nov. 26.

    There are a few themes you can expect to see: architecture, house pets, Ben Franklin Bridge and street art.
