As a 2010 Leeway Art & Change Grant recipient, I was given the opportunity to have a free portrait session with a photographer for The Leeway Foundation's upcoming Artist Book. These sessions were offered on 3 different dates at 3 different locations in Philadelphia. My session was this past Saturday at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens with artist, printmaker and photographer Kay Healey. Kay is also the Education and Outreach Manager at the Gardens and a previous recipient of a Leeway Art and Change Grant.
It was hot, hot, hot... but I had a great time chatting with Kay as she took me to the different nooks of the Gardens for a variety of shots. Have yet to see the outcome of our session but was happy to finally see this Magical Garden right in Philly which are the creations of one wildly creative mosaic artist named Isaiah Zagar.
Have you discovered any place magical this summer in your neighborhood?
