Alas, they arrived a little late. Read more »
You have about seven more hours to make your mark on Greater Philly Photo Day, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center’s initiative to capture a full day in the Greater Philadelphia region via a hodgepodge of photos. After midnight, AAI will begin collecting all the images and putting them together for a special exhibition opening November 12th. They’ll also choose three of the best images to display on billboards in SEPTA stations around town, which is obviously what we’re all shooting for here. To help you get that prize-winning shot, we asked Philly Mag staffers to help us come up with a list of quintessential, impossible-to-beat spots to nab that perfect selfie. Here’s what we came up with:
LOVE Statue on UPenn’s Campus
It’s not the one you’re used to, but this one has trees!
Just don’t blind yourself with the flash.
The “Rocky Steps” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
A typical shot, but it always gets tons of likes on Instagram—especially if you point your lens toward the city.
Some people have made a living taking selfies (cough, Kim Kardashian). Others have made a living doing far more interesting things (chefs, fashion designers, pro-surfers). For our August issue, we reached out to the latter, and persuaded them to give us their best Kim K. The result? Seventy-five selfies, each an intimate peek at the behind-the-scenes lives of Philly notables.
Some selfies were cute (Congressman Bob Brady with his tiny great-granddaughter); some were sexy (um, did you see the cover?); some were not sexy (the Geator in a Speedo); and some were hilarious (Fergie Carey in fur, lamé and sunglasses I actually think I own, too). Below are pics from Philly’s style and shopping scene; check out the entire roundup — including that Geator Speedo — here.
For the July issue, Philadelphia magazine put together “Selfie-delphia,” a giant compilation of 75 selfies taken by notable faces from around Philly. And you know how us fitness folks love our selfies, so the issue would not be complete without a few faces from Philly’s health and wellness scene.
Our mother publication, Philadelphia magazine, recently complied a collection of 75 selfies from notable faces around the region. Of course, there’s plenty of familiar folks in Philly’s rich arts and entertainment world that made the cut. Below you’ll find their shameless selfie poses that they shared with our readers.

The July issue of Philadelphia magazine is all about selfies. Particularly, Philadelphians taking photos of themselves. Check out the local food and drink pros who obliged with their candid shots.
It started as a social-media phenomenon: Grab a friend and your phone, make duck-faces, click and post. Then came the official dictionary definition, and an entire book of photos from Kim Kardashian (titled Selfish, of course). There’s no denying it, folks—we’re living in the Age of the Selfie. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The cameras we carry have turned us all into amateur documentarians, with even the goofiest snapshot exposing how we see ourselves and the rapidly changing world around us. Read more »
Hey Philly! Get pumped for Selfies Week! We need your best selfies for an upcoming photo feature. Starting Monday, May 4th, we’re collecting your submissions online, via Instagram, or Twitter or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you use the hashtag #PhillySelfieContest. Here’s what we need:
1. Selfies with you and a celebrity with Philly ties.
