Jennifer Avello Chicago

Welcome to Showcase Chicago, brought to you by Production Paradise. This issue features some of the leading photographers, photo and film production companies, and hair and make-up artists working out of Chicago.

More creative professionals and facilities for photographic and film production are available in our Chicago Photo and Film directories.

Be sure to catch our recommended events:

  • In Their Own Form: the exhibition featuring photography and video work of 13 artists, exploring the ways the blackness can be seen without stereotypes and racism. Photographers used the theme of Afrofuturist, which refers to a cross-disciplinary genre combining science fiction, Afrocentrism, fantasy, technology, and non-Western mythologies to reimagine the tense past, present, and future of the transnational black experience. Until 8th July at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. 
  • Memoir of a City: Selections from the David Garrard Lowe Historic Chicago Photograph Collection. The exhibition features the photographs of over 1000 Chicago's historic residences, office buildings, hotels, schools, clubs, transportation, infrastructure, and more. Until 15h June at the Art Institute of Chicago.
