This fascinating design show is at the Chicago Cultural Center through December.
The photos are themed "Alien Americana" (photos of the US) and "Routine Rituals" (in India). To see Parsons and Charlesworth photos, you have to go to the exhibit. Besides the photographs, there's much more to see.
Their photos made me think: I have thousands of photos in my "picture bank" that I have taken over the past decade. Perhaps some of these will inspire me to consider some project ideas, like painting or an art quilt?
The photographs below are from my collection (have appeared on the blog); they fit a category like "Alien Americana".
Happy Halloween, btw.
