philadelphia news

art students, construction workers, napping nomads, friends, couples, blue collars and white tee's. sharing a connection in creating the birth place of america structured with soul and history. to an outsider looking in, philadelphia may appear disordered and chaotic... which in fact, holds some truth.

i moved to philadelphia three years ago after having spent my younger years down south. the pace of the east coast contrasts with southern ways. once submerging myself into the streets known as "brotherly love" i started noticing locals sitting on news stands, still amongst a pulse of horns, taxis, sirens and footsteps moving in every direction. a colorful scene vibes with daydreamers who slow down time in the midst of a swelling constant motion.

i am inspired and influenced by the city of philadelphia and this is the city's hangout. a place to gather your thoughts while taking pressure off your footsteps. it requires no cash or credit card - no shoes - no shirt - no application. all are welcome in philly - whether to read the news, see the news, or be the news.
