This Sunday at Chicago Photography Center is the Opening Reception for CPC's Outreach Exhibition. The Outreach Program, headed by Betsy Lent, was established to provide access to photography for underserved and overlooked communities. This year marks the fifth exhibit of work from the group, and a new partnership with Catholic Charities' After Supper Visions Program. Photography from both programs will be on display, and many artists will be on hand to meet visitors. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, visit www.chicagophoto.org.
If you know me, then you know that I have been hard at work for the past couple years learning the ropes and making a transition from my career in retail to running my own photography business. It has been tough, but I am so proud to finally be where I planned to be. I hope you'll join me from 7 - 9pm at 3301 N. Lincoln Ave. for the occasion. If you can't make it tonight, the exhibit will be up for the next few weeks.
My final project is a photo essay about losing a loved one, and how we maintain a relationship with them. This work is very meaningful to me, and in some ways I think its potential to help others is my purpose. If you, or someone you know, would like to participate in the project - Contact me so we can discuss the possibilities!
