Since 1972, The Chicago Reporter has reported on the social, economic and political issues of metropolitan Chicago with a distinct focus on race and poverty.
In 2012, the Reporter started a photojournalism fellowship program. The first two fellows, Jonathan Gibby and Lucio Villa, used photography and multimedia to visualize the Reporter’s tenacious documentation of the region’s ongoing struggle with racial and economic inequality.
In June 2013, they exhibited some of their best work. If you missed the event, you can still view and purchase their work online.
