Grit Photography

My friend Sooz Main is the coolest chick ever.

She works harder than James Brown (only she's not, technically, in show business) and she's been every-fuckin-where. I am such a fan. I had the fortune of writing with her in a group last year and her work changed me, as an artist and a person. She's a two time Weisman Award winner--which, to be fair, may not mean much to you if you're not a student of a particular Chicago art school. But her work, recently featured at the Book & Paper Arts Center here in Chicago, is now available for purchase.

Click here to check out the photodoc of Uptown, one of the most urban, complicated and interesting neighborhoods in Chicago. Next month, if you're in the south Loop, come check her stuff out at Manifest. It promises to be dope.

Other work--image and text--can be found here. Manifest B.A. + B.F.A. Photography Exhibition 2011: 2 May - 20 May, 2011, 1006 S Michigan Ave
