Urban Portraits from Philly Photo Day

Philly Photo Day was Friday, October 28 and people all over the city submitted more than 900 images to the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) capturing a day in the life of our city.

Sarah Stolfa, executive director of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, told me she was delighted by the response and said that this year’s submissions showed a wider range of subjects that last year. You can see all of the images in an exhibit that opens at the Crane Arts Building (1400 N. American Street) next week. The free opening reception is from 6-9pm, Thursday, November 10th. All of the prints will be for sale for $25, and proceeds benefit PPAC.

Stolfa curated a selection of fantastic urban images for Eyes on the Street. Click through the gallery below to see her pic picks.
