My Home Series: #5 Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois
My husband and I were married midway through medical school, but lived in Philadelphia and Chicago until we graduated. Then I joined him for post-grad training at the University of Chicago and we moved into our very first "adult" apartment together. It was a lovely modern apartment in one of two buildings that sat on a landscaped island in the middle of E 55th Street. Friends used to call it carbon monoxide island because the two lanes of traffic on E55th Street separated to go around the apartment complex.
I have only a few photos from our years there - one taken during a snowstorm when the buildings were silhouettes and the other taken of just one corner of the building showing the architecture. I'm not pleased with my page composition, but know how I will position these images when I work more on this series.
