NJE photographer: David Schalliol

Our double feature today is courtesy of Chicago photographer David Schalliol.  David is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago and his photographic work seem to revolve tightly around his research in that department.  Neighborhoods, buildings, inhabitants and structure are all at the core of David's work, as he studies neighborhoods around Chicago and the rest of the country, and how government agencies are gentrifying areas and how residents of those areas are adapting to the changes that inevitably follow. The two pieces selected for the National Juried Exhibition are not from projects featured on David's website, but his aesthetic stay strong and consistent regardless of whether he's shooting in his city or on a larger national scope.

In addition to school and shooting, David is the Founder and Editor of metroblossom and Managing Editor of Gapers Block.  Make some time to visit David's website at www.DavidSchalliol.com - you'll learn a lot and see some stunning research.

See all of the work in person at the Steenbock Gallery; the National Juried Exhibition opens Monday, February 28 and runs until April 8 with an opening reception scheduled for March 4 from 6-9pm.  We want to see you there!!
