Wheatpasting Wednesdays: Photographer Friends!

If you live in Northern Liberties you’ve definitely seen this wall on 2nd and Laurel. Shepard Fairey pasted a giant Andre there about 2 years ago, after that it became “The Place to Paste” everyone and their brother was getting up on there including myself. Over time, it got more and more cluttered and eventually just got to be too much. I would drive by and just get so sad to see all of these tiny 8.5 x 11 posters haphazardly placed all over every thing with no “real” purpose. So after awhile I decided I was going to put up something huge to give the wall some breathing room again.
I was fortunate enough to have my friends Pat Furey, Chris Loupos, and Rebecca come along for the ride and document some of the process so these pictures are from them. Amazing amounts of talent coming out of those individuals, it was super inspiring spending the day with them talking about photo stuff that I barely understand. Thanks so much guys! Couldn’t have almost got caught without you.
