Photos by Meghan Mcenerney
My photography is an effort to preserve history. These photos were taken in the Italian Market portion of Philadelphia back in 2013.
My intent was to capture each distinctive part of the life that makes up the market as a whole. Many times I look at urban photography and am an awe at the amazing difference time and history plays in an image. As life and landscape changes, figures that were once a staple in a community can disappear.
