Philadelphia

I have fallen in love with this city. Video designer Kevan Loney and I took a weekend trip to Philly to shoot landscape of mostly west Philly, where Kathy Change used to live and perform outdors. We visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Clark Park, the UPenn campus, Independnce Mall and we stayed in Powelton Village (University City) all places that Kathy Change (the subject matter for the upcoming Chang(e)) used to live and perform. Some of these images will appear in the show!

The Peace Sculpture where Kathy used to perform on the Penn campus.

Kevan taking shots of the College Green. Kathy was nicknamed "The College Green Dancer." She performed on the UPenn campus for around 18 years. 

This is a lounge area the Van Pelt library at the Penn campus. You can see the Peace Sculpture from the window.

This statue collection is called "Social Consciousness." A spot where Kathy used to perform with friends at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Sundays. She would declare that she would celebrate "Mother's Day" and the mother of us all is Social Consciousness.

There are train tracks running all through the streets of Philadelphia. This particular area is Callowhill.
