Description

PICTURES OF DIVERSITY is a photography project on the daily lives of the foreign and first-generation immigrant students of the University of Chicago. This exhibition gathers a series of portraits where students stage their own production to portray their identities.

In part 1 (May 12-26), Christian Raby presents photographic portraits of immigrants in France in settings where elements of the subjects’ native and adopted cultural identities combine and interact. In part 2 (May 26-June 11), UChicago students present portraits of immigrants in Chicago—with short biographies of each subject—that they will have created and realized under Raby’s guidance.

Supported by The Logan Center for the Arts, the University Community Service Center, the Department of Romance Languages & Literatures, the France Chicago Center, and the College.
