ChicagoArts

ChicagoArts was my first foray into video. These were interviews of people involved in the business of art in and around Chicago. From artists, gallery owners, collectors and others, I interviewed those who were offering some of the best of what Chicago had to offer in the arts.

My Portrait Project put me in a position of being good at interviewing. Having spent countless hours talking to people I never met before gave me a unique perspective on interviewing. I often pushed those who I was interviewing to dig deeper than they would normally which would cause them to rethink their work or how it related to others.

Below you can see just a small number of people that I had the pleasure of interviewing through this project.
