When photographer Hannah Price moved from Colorado to Philadelphia, she experienced her very first catcall. In turn, she flipped the balance of power and turned her camera on her harassers.
Touché, Price, touché.

In speaking with The Morning News, Price explains what precedes the images.
Once a guy catcalls me, depending on the situation, I would either candidly take their photograph or walk up to them and ask if I can take their photograph. They usually agree and we talk about our lives as I make their portrait.
City of Brotherly Love by Hannah Price
“I grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado, and never experienced men publicly expressing their sexual interest in me till I moved to Philadelphia”, Price expounds. “At the time it was an unusual experience and threw me off guard.”
The uncomfortable transition has paid off for the talented young woman.
The Yale Fine Arts graduate student has featured her works in several exhibitions across the nation and three of her photographs from the series are also included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
