A comprehensive new exhibition of fine art photographs by members of the artist-initiated, non-profit group Women in Focus-Chicago (WIF) opens on Friday, April 13 at Hairpin Arts Center, 2810 N. Milwaukee Avenue, with an open-to-the-public gala celebrating the city’s diversity from 7 – 10 p.m. at the gallery.

The show is the culmination of a year of work by WIF photographers who visited a different Chicago neighborhood each month, capturing thousands of images representing the people, sights, and culture of Bronzeville, Chinatown, Downtown, Historic Pullman, Hyde Park, Lincoln Park and the Lakefront, Logan Square, Pilsen, Rogers Park, Uptown, the West Loop, and Wicker Park.

Curated by two well-known experts on both photography and Chicago neighborhoods, Richard Cahan and Charles Osgood, the Hairpin exhibition marks the debut of the full project, following a preview exhibit at Café SelMarie last summer and the inclusion of select works in Jackson Junge Gallery’s “In the ‘Hood” show over the 2017 holiday season. The full project includes 74 archival fine art prints, with 5-7 photographs representing each of the 12 neighborhoods.

Curators Cahan and Osgood were ideally suited to select the very best shots for the show: Rich Cahan is a former picture editor for the Chicago Sun-Times and was the director of CITY 2000. He has edited several books about photography and is one of the founders of CityFiles Press in Chicago. Chuck Osgood is a former Chicago Tribune photojournalist and co-author, with reporter Rick Kogan, of the «Sidewalks» book series and column for the Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine.
