I was antsy at school all day because I knew this baby arrived in the mail. I’m so famous.

Shots from Framing Chicago week 2 field trip to the Cultural Center

We got to enjoy looking at amazing photos in the Mecca Flat Blues exhibit documenting the historical building from Chicago’s south side.  It was a great opportunity to see and learn about a piece of Chicago’s history that is both relevant architecturally and sociologically.  The sun was out and it felt amazing to be outdoors in our fair city once again.  Looking forward to see the film next week when we start printing in the darkroom! 

A grand ol’ time it was, indeed! We have a great group of students and a great city as our subject.

Architectural photography is a great gig. Welcome to the Conrad Hilton Suite, high atop the Hilton Chicago. #photgraphy #photo #interiors #architecture #luxehome

As administrator of CCC Shutter Club, I had the idea of bringing back “Pizza & Prints,” a traditional exhibition that the darkroom used to put on. Since the change in ciriculuum, they haven’t happened as frequently. I decided to propose the exhibition to the department, had any and all part of the club submit work, designed the layout of the show and more. @rudylorejo was a huge help in making my ideas come to life, along with other friends who helped with the hanging of the show. We have great work on 10 and had a great turnout as well.

This was a book from 1930 that I flipped through a few times at the library today. It was very delicate and beautiful. Old things are exciting.
