The Walk 4 Hearing in Chicago had a lot of happy participants!

Here are a few of my favorite moments from the Walk 4 Hearing awareness walk that took place in the fall of 2018. The event was organized by the Hearing Loss Association of America, and it took place at the Diversey Harbor in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago.

The Illinois Retina Associates held their annual conference Retina Update 2018. The one-day conference was held at the Chicago OakBrook Marriott Hotel in December, and I photographed all of the presenters, the audience as they absorbed the content, the networking, and the registration process.

Opening Night with Martine Syms

Opening night at the Graham Foundation with Martine Syms, featuring her immersive installation around her feature length film Incense Sweaters & Ice.

Here are a few of my favorite moments during the opening night event for Martine Syms at the Graham Foundation. To learn more about the installation, there’s a wonderful video created by The Museum of Modern Art, where Martine explains her work.

The immersive installation took advantage of an augmented reality application that audiences could download to their phone. To have a better understanding of how this works, you can watch a video of Martine explaining the process.
