Fall 2011 How Philly Moves shoots!

The fall 2011 HPM photo sessions were amazing.

Over the course of three intense days, over 140 individuals were photographed.

This is the kind of experience that they reported having:

I just… I mean… I can’t even begin… I just… I… wow. Today may have been the most liberating 4 minutes of my life thus far and I want to thank you for that. I felt safe, I felt celebrated and beautiful. Thank you so much for creating that space and forum for a total loss of inhibition! I mean… really! Still smiling!

These events happened thanks to you:

The funding for this incarnation of How Philly Moves came from over 600 individuals who backed the project on Kickstarter, and the individual donors and monthly sustainers of JJ Tiziou Photography. This is the first significant realization of JJ’s dream of sustainably creating positive imagery through community-supported photography.

What comes next?

Over 14,000 images were generated. The participants and Kickstarter backers will get the first look at them, and you can find them trickling out on the How Philly Moves page on Facebook.Keep an eye on the news feed for more updates.

The images will be available for prints, and potential inclusion in future public art projects. (If you’ve been by Philadelphia International Airport lately, you may have noticed the parking structures at Terminal A&B looking pretty bare…)
