Description

"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."
