Dilly Bars and Art

As you might remember I was featured in the FLOW Northside Art Crawl last year. I was busy during this year's deadline and didn't have a project to display. After Mapping Disaster I didn't want to disappoint.
The day afterthe deadline I got an email from Dudley Voight. She puts together FLOWand we've met a few times on potential projects. After she gave me a nudge I felt compelled to put something together.  What I came up with was Midwest (or A Year in the Midwest or Midwest Annum...), twelve landscapes of sorts, which depict the shifts in my work away from in your face photojournalism.

A new boardwalk was completed after being stalled by the tornado. 
It allows you to walk all the way around Wir…
