Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the US and of special historic and national importance. The place where the Declaration of Independence was pronounced and the Constitution was signed is the subject of Candida Höfer’s latest series.

13 large-size photographs portray the city’s symbolic, venerable institutions and one modern building, the Beth Sholom synagogue.

With a foreword by Anna-Maria Ehrmann-Schindlbeck and texts by Richard Torchia and Mari Shaw.
