To support a publication growing from the Terra Foundation-supported exhibition Never a Lovely So Real: Photography and Film in Chicago, 1950-1980. Like the exhibition, the publication showcases the work of artists and filmmakers who captured the life of their Chicago communities or those to which they were granted intimate access. The multi-author publication features original essays addressing photography’s relationship to the Black Arts Movement and the role of film in activism, among other topics; transcribed interviews and statements by photographers represented in the exhibition; and related primary sources.
