Living in the city is like trying to navigate a dream sometimes–a beautiful, terrifying, hilarious, heartbreaking, endearing dream. This delirious life of ours is perfectly encapsulated by the annual Philly Photo Day exhibition, opening this Thursday at Crane Arts. As is now tradition, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center kindly allowed us to drop in and take a sneak peek at all 1,903 submissions they received this past October. It was a wild, hallucinatory experience and we highly recommend it. Here is a small, but potent preview of what to expect.

The 5th annual Philly Photo Day exhibition opens this Thursday at 6PM at Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, 1400 N. American Street. The exhibition will run from November 13 to December 28.
Billboards showcasing 40 individual submissions—and a second outdoor exhibition to be held at Dilworth Park—will go up in early summer of 2015.
