Abstract: 
This zine is a collection of quiet photos taken in the nighttime. Often featuring close-up shots and an unnamed woman in different interiors and locations around Chicago (a Pilsen storefront's awning can be spotted), the photographer unveils a hushed world in contrast to the bustling urban landscape.

Near West Side Stories: Struggles for Community in Chicago's Maxwell Street Neighborhood

1st ed
Abstract: 
<em>Near West Side Stories: Struggles for Community in Chicago's Maxwell Street Neighborhood</em> is an ongoing story of unequal power in Chicago. Four representatives of immigrant and migrant groups that have had a distinct territorial presence in the area&mdash;one Jewish, one Italian, one African-American, and one Mexican&mdash;reminisce fondly on life in the old neighborhood and tell of their struggles to save it and the 120-year-old Maxwell Street Market that was at its core. <p> <em>Near West Side Stories</em> brings this saga of community strife up to date, while giving a voice to the everyday people who were routinely discounted or ignored in the big decisions that affected their world. Though slaying that dragon&mdash;fending off the encroachments of those wielding great power&mdash;was nearly impossible, we see in the details of their lives the love for a place that compelled Harold, Florence, Nate, and Hilda to make the quest.</p>
