On July 16th I photographed the opening night of the Ignition Festival of New Plays at Victory Gardens Theater. The performance was by André De Shields and featured Kimberly Lawson, Donica Lynn, Tony Mhoon, Doug Peck, and Robert Reddrick.
Connecting Art with Advocacy
My photographs capture the beauty of the Chicago lakefront, but they also represent a link between the ecology of the Great Lakes and our human dependency on the environment.
The perception is that our region possesses a seemingly endless abundance of water — but this misconception distracts from the fragility of this freshwater ecosystem and undermines its importance.
Using art as a pathway for discovery, I invite you to embrace the aesthetic joy I find while exploring the lakefront — and learn more about the natural world surrounding us.
