Conrad Benner is a photographer, podcaster, curator, and Founder of StreetsDept.com, a photo-blog that discovers art on the streets of Philadelphia. Conrad was recently named 'One of the 100 Most Influential People in Philadelphia' by Philadelphia Magazine, his blog named one of the ‘Best Blogs for Travellers’ by The Guardian, and his photography highlighted by Mashable and Instagram as well as printed in Time Magazine and the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Established in January of 2011, Conrad's primary focus with Streets Dept is to document and celebrate street art and graffiti, but he does also uses the blog to explore muralism and other forms of commissioned public art as well as architecture and creative public spaces. As Conrad writes on his website: "In general, I believe deeply that the public space has a profound effect on us as individuals and on our city as a whole, and my aim with Streets Dept is to explore how we build and use public spaces creatively."

“For years, Benner has tirelessly showcased Philly’s robust street art scene though his enormously popular blog and Instagram feed, Streets Dept… He has helped bring national respect to a Philadelphia art scene that deserves it.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer (2015)
