Photographing the Fairgrounds of the 1893 Columbian Exposition


Join internationally awarded photographer, Angie McMonigal as she shares in the journey to create her series "The White City", which was inspired by Erik Larson’s The Devil In The White City.

On the Wednesday evening prior to the workshop (July 5th), we will meet on-line and Angie will give a brief presentation of the inspirational details behind the White City series.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions to get your creative juices flowing.

On the first day, Saturday, July 8th, we will meet at the School (Ravenswood Location) and transport the small group of us south to the Museum of Science and Industry.  We will spend the next 6 hours photographing many of the locations seen in Angie's series, all transpotation will be provided. You will create your own version of these locations based on your unique vision, whether related to Larson’s book or a source of inspiration unique to you. Angie will be there to help guide you through this process while on location.

On the second day, we will meet at the studio (10am - 2pm), where Angie shares her post-processing techniques involved in this series. You’ll then work on your own images, coming away with many prints of your own.

Stops include: Museum of Science and Industry, Statue of the Republic, University of Chicago Campus, Rockefeller Chapel, Mansueto Library, Fountain of Time Sculpture plus other stops.
