This one-person exhibition by highly respected Chicago photographer Jin Lee features a series of photographs that closely examine landscapes and built environments around Chicago. The exhibition brings together four bodies of work: Train Views – images made during the artist’s weekly 2-hour Amtrak commute between Chicago and Bloomington/Normal; Great Water – views of Lake Michigan taken from a single location on the South Side of Chicago; Salt Mountains – images of piles and mounds of salt and dirt found on storage sites around the city; and Weeds – a collection of portraits of wild plants that grow in alleys and empty lots in a neighborhood.
