On Friday, October 18, Philadelphians of all ages and skill levels became professional photographers for the Philly Photo Day event, and now, their photographs take the spotlight at a citywide exhibition in Old City.
Philly Photo Day is an annual, day-long initiative organized by the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) that invites folks to photograph Philadelphia on a designated day as part of an all-inclusive exhibition. The exhibition then features every single picture submitted as part of Philly Photo Day.
Photos submitted by folks of all ages, neighborhoods and backgrounds create a varied portrait of the city — experience Philadelphia through someone else’s camera lens.
Tomorrow, November 14, join the photographers and photo-loving attendees at a free reception for the exhibition of more than 1,500 photos of our fair city. From 6 to 9 p.m., head to the Philly Photo Day Gallery in Old City to check out the exhibition.
The photos will remain on view through Saturday, December 28. Take note, the gallery is open from Wednesday to Saturday from noon to 7 p.m.
Also keep an eye out for Philly Photo Day submissions on billboards and SEPTA buses and trains throughout the city — 60 of the exhibition’s photos will be transformed into works of public art.
