Philly Photo Day 2013: Selected Photographs

from the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center
 
Terminal C, ticketed passengers
 
Anyone who was in Philadelphia on Philly Photo Day – October 18, 2013 -- was invited to take a photograph on that day of anything in the city. One day, each year, citizens of the city and its guests can take part in a communal celebration of photography. Whether using a phone, tablet, or digital camera, Philly Photo Day is about engaging people with the medium of photography. This day-long photo event, now in its fourth year, is an initiative of the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, a non-profit organization founded in 2009 devoted to the study, practice, and appreciation of photography throughout the region. Philly Photo Day has grown from 300 participants in the first year to more than 1,500 in 2013.
 
To participate, each photographer electronically submitted one photo to the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. All of the photos taken on Philly Photo Day have been printed and included in a 2 month-long exhibition. In addition, 20 digitally produced photomurals are displayed at the partners’ sites and 40 photos were chosen for public display on billboards to broadcast this unique project city-wide.
 
Philly Photo Day 2013 includes 176 photos providing regional, national, and international passengers with snapshots of a day in the life of the City of Philadelphia.
