Last weeks at Joseph Leidy School

This slideshow requires JavaScript.



When the 3:04pm bell rang on June 21st, Joseph Leidy School dismissed its elementary students for the last time. Joseph Leidy School is among the 26 public schools that closed in Philadelphia. I spent as much time as possible photographing the Leidy community during the last two weeks of the school year. Thanks goes to Principal Gina Steiner, who trusted me to document the school building as well as willing faculty and students.

These photos as well as the work of more than a dozen photographers also photographing closing schools can be seen at Philadelphia Schools Closing Photo Collective.
