Tourists

38.8 million tourists visited Philadelphia in 2012, a statistic that does not reflect the variety of people crowding around the attractions in the city. This collection of photographs taken around center city shows some of these people interacting with the popular tourist sites. Proud parents using their child’s drawing to mark their passage. Iconic figures solidly displayed as life blurs around them. Hungry steakistas happily wait their turn for a famed sandwich. We also see ourselves here, since we all play this role while traveling through life.
