SPE National Conference in Chicago. After the conference came to an end, the four of us had the honor of getting together with artists Kenneth Josephson and Marilyn Zimmerwoman for a homemade Moroccan brunch at Ken's place in Chicago. Shown above were some of my favorite shots from the trip: a few from the Art Institute of Chicago, brunch at Kens, and the last two were taken outside of the hotel I was staying at.
Once I got home from the trip I created a SPE pinboard so that I could easily reference back to some of the photographers whose work caught my eye. All in all it was a memorable trip, and I would highly recommend the conference to anyone with a passion for photography!
a few link suggestions:
+ for great food and a cozy spot, Farmhouse was on point (the cheese curds especially!).
+ check out this artist statement by photographer / designer, Micah Wallace.
+ Intelligentsia Coffee was a great little coffee shop I came across while solo-exploring.
+ revisit a past post on Kenneth Josephson, one of the original founders of SPE.
A few more pictures of my classmates (Noura, Jessica, Tom) and I.
Below were the professional photographs taken at the SPE National Dance Party!
