Good things happen when you least expect them, and then the trick is to go with the flow and just let it unfold not knowing where it will lead. Out of the blue I was presented with the opportunity to cover for
the photographer Akinbode Akinbiyi, who was unable to travel from Berlin to Chicago. The ask was to document Theatre Y performing “You Are Here” as part of their Emerald Camino Project. Twelve walking performances along the boulevards that connect the Chicago neighborhood parks. I spent three days with the ensemble and audience, walking for about six hours each day through Logan Square, Humboldt Park, and North Lawndale in Chicago.
