“When I was a kid, there was a baseball field in our neighborhood, and then all of a sudden for one week, it turned into this amazing carnival and it was the best thing that could happen,” said creator Kathryn Sclavi. “That’s what I hope happens here. There’s this empty lot, and then every Wednesday in the summer it’ll turn into this circusy-like canopy with twinkly lights and become a magical experience for people.” The pop-up will run Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. throughout August and September. — Luminance HDR 2.3.0 tonemapping parameters: Operator: Fattal Parameters: Alpha: 1 Beta: 0.9 Color Saturation: 1 Noise Reduction: 0 —— PreGamma: 1

Once again, eraserhood.com documentary photographer Bob Bruhin celebrates the Philadelphia neighborhood that inspired such diverse artists as David Lynch, David Goodis,and Sarah McEneaney. Bruhin’s “twisted views of a demented square mile” lovingly explore the rugged, gritty beauty of the classic industrial Callowhill neighborhood through the transcendent vision of a magical realist.

Bruhin has been working in and documenting the Callowhill neighborhood since 2007. He has exhibited in such diverse venues as West Philadelphia’s Seeds Gallery, Mt. Airy’s Highpoint Cafe, and PhilaMOCA’s 2012 Eraserhood Forever event.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Photographic Society of Philadelphia, in conjunction with Cafe 12.
