The most recent How Philly Moves shoots were amazing, with over 140 additional Philadelphians being photographed over the course of an intense three days of community dance photo sessions. The video above should give you a sense of what a magical weekend it was.
An update is on the project website, along with news about the permanent exhibit in the baggage claim, and of course the massive mural at the airport is complete. The project’s continued to get a pile of great press, and the Kickstarter blog just featured my little narrative of the crowdfunding process that brought this most recent incarnation of How Philly Moves to fruition.
Check out the news feed on the HPM site for the images.
Being able to create work in this crowd-funded way is the beginning of a dream come true. I’ve wanted to work this way since 2002, but the tools to facilitate community-supported photography are only now becoming available. It’s exciting times, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
