Philadelphia Street Style: Chris, off 16th St



Chris is a graphic designer, illustrator, and art director. You can check out his stuff and/or contact him for design work at http://chrimmons.com.

These alley shots are, I have to admit, in a sense staged. I actually found him walking down Walnut St, but it was so crowded we moved to the alleyway. I love these Center City alleys for shooting. They look like a suburban Californian's archetype of an East Coast big city landscape. But waiting for cool people to pass while standing in front of them doesn't work out as often as I would like. I usually give up and head to higher density areas like Walnut or Broad St. Plus, I'm always a little self-conscious about making my subjects stand too long in a place that smells like trash.
