Flying in/out of Philly, Check out Scott Weiner’s “I’m In Philly” Exhibit in Terminal F Plus I say Bon Voyage to Austin Mahone
photographer Scott Weiner has been taking photographs since the mid-1970s. From
the very beginning of his career, he was interested in concert photography. As
a young photographer, Weiner would buy tickets to shows and take photographs
from his seat.
in college studying radio, television, and film at Temple University, he sold
his first professional photograph to the
Philadelphia Inquirer. It was a backstage
photo of the now legendary musician Leon Russell. The next day, Weiner sold the
remaining photos of Russell to the artist’s record label. Weiner has been a
professional photographer ever since.
later, while working for the magazine Philadelphia
Style, Weiner routinely photographed celebrities who came to Philadelphia. At
one point, his editor commented that a particular photo wasn’t “Philly enough.”
‘I’m in Philly?’” So he did.
then, Weiner has worked on a series of photographs that he describes as a
“secret project.” At the end of each photo session, he gives the celebrity a
handmade sign that reads, “I’m in Philly,” and he takes one final shot. Using
signs drawn by his daughter, he carries them to every photo shoot. Today, he
has accumulated nearly 90 I’m in Philly
photographs from politicians and well-known personalities to musicians and
Weiner’s collection of 90 celebrities holding up signs reading “I’m in Philly” are on exhibit through April 2014 in the connector between Terminals E and F. They’re really great. My favorite one is Brittany Snow, so adorable.
