A meditation on place and labour in North Philadelphia, the area of the city that Marley Dawson lives and works in. The neighborhoods that comprise this area are loud, dirty, and sustained by alternative economies. It is rare to see anything unbroken. Close attention and a shift in perception is required to observe moments of stillness and beauty.
