Welcome and thanks for visiting. My site is full of images of where I am, where I’ve been, what I think and what I love to do.
I’m a native Chicagoan through and through and have been a street photographer and loving it for almost 10 years. Of course my drive and fascination is fueled by the events happening before me but especially by and with the gazillions of people who allow me to share their space with “our” stories of laughter, humor, history and sometimes-even tears.
This past year has been an active one. My images appeared in many different venues and events from “Red, Rust and Blue” being an Honorable Mention at the Long Grove Artists Guild to my newest installation being displayed throughout a “mag mile boutique hotel” in Chicago.[...]
"Those whose work and pleasure are one... are... Fortune's favoured children."
Do you agree we may not have or cannot take the time to immerse ourselves in or be part of "our moments"?
Undeniably, my street photography and other incredible photo opportunities bring me there. Facing MS forever and a day ago, at various times during my day I'd need to regenerate my nerves. Often enough, returning from work or whatnot I'd lie in the back seat of a cab or do some such to accommodate and forage ahead.
Fast-forward to 2007 as photography became my mobility and my passion as I tooled around on journeys (on my mobility scooter). "Scooting and shooting" let me look at, see and be part of "my all", expanding and delightfully sharing my visions along my way. My captures are of everything I see, do or become part of. People, nature, architecture or its demise, movement, stillness and any or everything else I encounter.
I've been told the curiosities my images elicit somehow stimulate the imagination and infuse an energy, humor and life force vital to us all. It's me … and it's for you.... Lori
