24 Hours In The Life Of The City, Part Two


Editor’s Note: Philly Photo Day doubled in size this year, from 900 submissions, to 1,800, which made picking out some of the most interesting images for this sneak preview that much harder. Indeed, there was so much fantastic material we split it into two parts. Check out Part I HERE. All 1,800 images will be on display at the Crane Arts Center, 1400 N American St., with an opening reception Thursday, Dec. 6th at 6PM. Photos from last year’s Philly Photo Day can be seen HERE and HERE.
