Exploring David Lynch’s “Eraserhood”

Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1 PM – 3 PMWhen David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood just blocks away from PAFA that so electrified Lynch’s imagination with two guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Bob Bruhin, photographer and author of “Walking the Eraserhood” (https://ehood.us/walking ). During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the area’s industrial history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.

Jane’s Walk – Photographing Callowhill during Golden Hour

Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM

Walk Leader: Bob Bruhin
Meeting point: SE corner of N. Broad and Noble streets at Rail Park entrance.
Free. Public. Rain or Shine.

My first reaction to the Callowhill district was to take out my phone and start taking pictures. Eventually this became the focus of my first book, “Walking the Eraserhood,” a photo essay exploring Callowhill between 2009 and 2014 and discussing the influence the neighborhood had on the work of painter/filmmaker David Lynch.

This year I would like us to celebrate together by photographing The Rail Park and surrounding neighborhood during the period photographers call The Golden Hour, and sharing our resulting images via social media.

Of course, as a Jane’s Walk, open discussion will be strongly encouraged, while we explore and document. Hopefully we can all learn together!!

Estimated walk duration: 90 minutes

Walk begins at SE corner of Broad and Noble (at the Rail Park entrance) and will end at The Patio (500 N 10th St).

Accessibility considerations: uneven terrain. Non-accessible curbcuts and/or stairs. low light/nighttime.

Dogs welcome.
