"A Portrait of Public Housing"

Saturday, March 28 - 11:40AM to 12:00PM
Oak Room

The Chicago Housing Authority has been implementing its
ambitious and controversial plan to replace current public housing
developments with mixed-income townhouses. My goal
as a photographer is to affirm the presence of current public
housing residents as well as to photograph the physical space at
stake amidst the uneven and unending development of Chicago.
With a renewed interest in urban living in recent decades, public
housing communities are being dismantled and displaced. By
choosing to photograph residents and their homes, my intent is
to give value to a population and landscape that has otherwise
been marginalized.
