Pictured here are photos that were within walking distance of UIC while I was a student of photography. The joy of a simple photograph on film has morphed into a scanned image for the digital age. A good friend called an exposed roll of film that had yet to be developed, "fear of the latent image." In a sense it is no longer fear of the image but hoping that the digital scan will live up to an image worthy of observation. You the viewer can make that determination.
Much has changed between 1975 and 2020. The neighborhoods have been greatly gentrified, the skylines have been filled and the factories have become trendy lofts for Airbnb use. The cars we drive today are designed for efficiency sake. We are in covid-19 times waiting for a vaccine and have more time to process what is truly meaningful in our lives. For me, it is to scan and upload my vintage film collection to the internet and show what once was in the camera of a young student who stayed true to the pure vision of the latent image.
