Hillary Petrozziello was raised in Ono, Pennsylvania as the last of five children. Growing up in a town of 120 people instilled in her a curiosity for compact urban life and culture in Philadelphia. She is fascinated with bridging the dichotomy between the intangible mind-heart and its outward expression. At times she explores newsworthy reality through her role as photo editor/photographer for philly.com. In other instances, her style is influenced by the mundane intrigues of beauty, light, and energy in the everyday. Her goal is to harness visual intuition in order to foster a greater level of awareness and social tolerance in an increasingly interconnected world.
She is currently based in Philadelphia, PA, and wants to take your picture.
“By photographically introducing neighbors to one another in an honest and intimate way, my goal is to foster understanding and dispel uncertainty and fear.”
