Native son and poet Carl Sandburg described Chicago as the "City of the Big Shoulders," intending to characterize its gritty industrial past. Since Sandburg's 1908 poem, the city has enlarged its reputation with world-class cultural opportunities. Physically defined by its long Lake Michigan waterfront, its significant architectural heritage and its distinct and diverse neighborhoods, Chicago is one of America's great cities to see. Creatively defined by its great museums and galleries and its opera, orchestra and blues scene, Chicago is one of America's great cities to experience. Intellectually defined by its leading educational institutions many with strong photography programs, Chicago is one of America's great cities in which to teach and learn.
Fifty years ago, The Society for Photographic Education's founders held their first conference in Chicago in so it's fitting to return to the place where they first made contact to celebrate photography, teaching and SPE.
