A Photography Interview with Conrad Benner of StreetsDept.com

StreetDept.com is a Philly-based photo-blog that documents and celebrates street art, graffiti, and urban exploration in and around Philadelphia. We sat down with creator Conrad Benner to learn more about his work and about a recent shoot he did on the FMC Tower while under construction. Streets Dept was established in January 2011, and has since become one of the top Instagram accounts in Philadelphia, thanks to Conrad's unique and deep knowledge of the urban landscape of America's 5th largest city.  Our first ever collab tee at TogTees was the result of a partnership with Conrad to create his very own line of original tees representing street art in Philadelphia.  You can see them here.   Photo by Streets Dept.
