Selections of the best images produced on assignment or for stock from the month of February.

From their North Philly warehouse, Philly Foodworks offers winter produce to online customers (photographed on assignment for The Philadelphia Inquirer). The mortgage was burned in a ceremony at the Paul Robeson House in West Philadelphia (on assignment for WHYY).
