I've been a very bad blogger this month, a terrible blogger.
Part of the reason for my absence is that I have been spending most of my free time lurking around the Armitage Brown Line (Chicago Subway) platform trying to interview people for the public art commission I've been working on. I've been asking people to share a story from their life in Chicago with me with the plan of making a photograph of the location where the story took place and pairing it with an excerpt from their story (does the name Studs Terkel ring a bell?). Below you can see an example of a tile and a sketch of the finished piece (10' x 45'). I'll be building an area on my website for this project but in the mean time, I promise to be a better blogger.

This past friday, a group of us from Chicago had a show open up at The Vermont Center for Photography. Vermont had apparently been struggling with a lack of snow this winter and so we brought some with us from the windy city. We got about two inches on the night of the opening and had a great time with friends both new and old. If in the area, be sure to check it out. The show features photographers: Brian Ulrich, Matt Siber, Greg Stimac, Jason Lazarus and Mary Farmilant.
