The architecture of Philadelphia speaks to its more than 300-year history. However, there is a timelessness to a walk through its neighborhoods. There is a mixture of just about every important style to be found.
My purpose is not to make accurate architectural or historical photographs. What is important to me is how the textures of all the varying motifs blend together to create an urban landscape of infinite interest and beauty. The materials may differ, but, somehow, there is a delicate balance between the contrasting wood, brick, stone, steel, and glass facades of the city. For, as Elliott Erwitt points out, photography “has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”.
