Austin Hodges and Billy Cress have a unique way of showcasing Philadelphia’s sly beauty: photographing its residential facades. Using the hashtag #phillyhomeportrait on the popular image-sharing app Instagram, they have between them more than 44,00 followers. Each photo they post gets hundreds, sometimes thousands, of likes. They’ve also self-published two books about the homes.
A short film called Philly Home Portrait — which comes online today — takes a deeper look at their process. “I love this story because it’s all about being aware of the everyday beauty around us,” says filmmaker Cory Popp. “It’s easy to pass these places without thinking twice, but these home portraits are a conscious effort to capture that beauty.”
Popp has taken the same kind of photos, and now has a dedicated site where prints are available for sale.
