Public gallery: Documenting Philadelphia?s diverse street art scene






The photographer behind a popular blog on capturing the community behind the artwork Behind the Lens looks at architectural photographers both professional and amateur, examining how they got their start, stories from their portfolios, and tricks to capturing great design. Have a lensman in mind" Send links to portfolios (no photo files) to [email protected]
Anybody can take a photo of graffiti and street art. That?s been made abundantly clear on Instagram and other social media channels. But to capture artwork and truly provide context, a sense of place, and?when everything aligns?a sense of awe, takes not only skills but a deep understanding of place.
Conrad Benner, the Philadelphia native behind the six-year-old Streets Dept blog and a popular Instagram account, has turned a continued fascination with his city, deep connections to the street art community, and a great eye into a long-running document of a fertile street art scene.
While New York often gets credit as the birthplace of graffiti and street art, Philadelphia, a city with a large population of students and a world-renowned city mural program, has both a huge contemporary art scene and a deep history of street art. Darryl McCray, or Cornbread, who is considered one of the progenitors of street art, made his name tagging around the city in the late ?60s, and even made the papers for writing ?Cornbread Lives? on an elephant in the Philadelphia Zoo.

?I think more and more about how influential our public space is around us and how it makes us feel,? Benner says. ?Advertisers wouldn?t spend so much money on outdoor advertising every year if it didn?t get results. The art and architecture that we have in our public spaces has a really profound impact on our mood and feelings. That?s what I like to explore with my photography.?
Photos of architecture, another subject that appears repeatedly in Benner?s work, have been accepted as art in and of themselves, beyond the work they seek to capture and contextualize. Benner hopes to see this same respect given to photos of street art.
?It?s not just about the photography,? he says. ?I?ve lived in this city my entire life, and I don?t want to get bored.?
Curbed spoke to Benner about the importance of community to good photography, how to build an audience, and why it?s important to always be exploring new streets.

How did you get started in photography" What made you want to photograph buildings"
?I?ve always been interested in architecture and street art. I remember getting books when I was a kid, I still have them stacked up in my living room. I used to read skyscraper blogs everyday, learning the skylines of every city on Earth and getting obsessed with buildings. I didn?t actually start photographing until I broke my leg; I was...
