THE source

The Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society collects, preserves and shares the story of the diverse community of Chicago’s far north side. Established on July 28, 1975 by local residents who believed their part of Chicago was a place with much to celebrate, the Society today serves the community through its publications, architectural tours, and various educational and outreach efforts.

THE archives

This image, entitled Fabiola Rodney holds the flag, spoke to me. My interpretation was created for the exhibition. 

THE exhibition

Property is a collaborative exhibit with the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society that reflects the way neighborhoods emerge and change as a result of land development. For this project, the Historical Society placed 100 images from the Rogers Park/West Ridge photography archive into the creative commons. The new works of the exhibition have been created as individual responses to the archival images.
