Philadelphia: Portraits of the City
"Our Philadelphia, as is all our history, is made of these moments: photographs and stories. And in our effort to find and delineate these moments we also recognized that we approached a sense of place. Circling ever closer to a shared recognition of character our work attempts to define a place not descriptively but intuitively. The book, our effort to celebrate what we share with so many others in this big beautiful city, is perhaps the appropriate acknowledgement. - Beautiful, black and white photographs by Jerome Lukowicz that provide an uncommon appraisal of the city of Philadelphia.... Short texts and stories, written by Sean O'Rourke, that speak to Jerome's photographs and the experience of living in Philadelphia - The combination of photographs and stories 'shows' the physical character of the city, and 'tells' the experience of living in the city, that speaks to its architecture, urbanity and its authentic place - The same exact book is carefully packed in a lid and bottom box, offering three different cover photographs."
