Presentation

The seven photographers who are the subject of this exhibit – Wayne Miller, Ray K. Metzker, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Marvin E. Newman, Vivian Maier, Tom Arndt and Carlos Javier Ortiz – cover the period from 1940 to the present. None of them has followed the same path and none have the same way of looking at things. Each one presents us with a different image of the African-American community that had come to Chicago from the Deep South with the hope of greater freedom and better jobs. Their photos are a shocking and highly artistic testament to the life of the blacks of Chicago for over a half century.
