Philadelphia News – Nema Etebar


Philadelphia News
philadelphia news::
art students, construction workers, napping nomads, friends, couples, blue collars and white tee’s. sharing a connection in creating the birth place of america structured with soul and history. to an outsider looking in, philadelphia may appear disordered and chaotic… which in fact, holds some truth. i moved to philadelphia four years ago after having spent my younger years down south. the pace of the east coast contrasts with southern ways. once submerging myself into the streets known as “brotherly love” i started noticing locals sitting on news stands, still amongst a pulse of horns, taxis, sirens and footsteps moving in every direction. a colorful scene vibes with daydreamers who slow down time in the midst of a swelling constant motion. inspired and influenced by the city of philadelphia and this is the city’s hangout.. it requires no cash or credit card – no shoes – no shirt – no application. all are welcome in philly – whether to read the news, see the news, or be the news.

    I love this photo series. Awesome. I was also raised in the south and I recognized the hard, uninviting hurried pace people have here. I noticed mostly the lack of eye contact. I assume it is so you don’t have to bother with unwanted attention or solicitors. Even still I find that unfriendly, even though it isn’t on purpose. Despite all that, once you can get past the initial hard shell, people here can be very open and warm They will surprise you, more often than not, with a combination of unique character and a sincere sentimental gem hiding in a tough, cool attitude. Nothing like Philly, that’s for sure.
