Highly symbolic and venerable institutions have a story to tell about the citys 300-year history. In 2007, Candida Hofer selected some of them and explored them with her tried-and-tested approach to photography. The interiors of the Fisher Library, the Girard College, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Masonic Temple convey a genuine dignity and representative splendor.

Typically of the artist, the photos depict the interiors in a deserted state and a axis-symmetrical view. Among the 13 large-scale color photographs of the Philadelphia Series, there is only one modern building, the Beth Sholom Synagogue.
