Portraits of the Loop

Creatives like Roy Serafin & Kyle Scott make Chicago such a delight.

VoyageChicago is all about supporting creatives and risk takers – from makeup artists, fashion designers and music producers to chefs, entrepreneurs and more.  In our Portraits series we try to celebrate their work by sharing some of our favorite shots we’ve come across.  We’ve share shots from the Loop below.

If you are unsure of your future, just keep doing what you think is right…. What is meant to be will always find you, God will make sure of it 🙏🏽 ▶️I never stress over the little stuff because I know that God has a plan for me, I’m a strong believer that everything happens for reason. ▶️That’s why I chain myself to nothing, the people you meet and circumstances you are dealt with are placed there to either teach you a lesson or there to help you grow. ▶️So, before you stress. Know that if you are lost, you will eventually find your way. If something goes wrong.. know that it might be a blessing in disguise, and if someone leaves your life, know that they were there to teach you a lesson and now their time is done. The right people will come into your life and be there to stay. #blessed #grateful #life Unedited: @tlrsevennine – – – #fitnessgirl #Chicagomodel #fitnesslife #abs #train #healthy #healthylifestyle #tattoo #tattoossometimes #sundayfunday #gymsession #legsgains #ladybeast #triplet #fitnessjourney #fitnesslifestyle #fitnessfreak #girlswholift #nopainnogain #getstrong #mondaymiles #chestday #seenonmyrun #trainhard #strengthtraining #physiquefreak

What do you tell yourself when you look in the mirror? ⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Sometimes I question if people will be my friend.. am I cool enough? Pretty enough? But that’s a perception I have, not the truth. We would never tell others the things we think about ourselves. . What is one word you want to write on your mirror as you get ready to conquer the day? ⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ •She craves attention, she praises an image… Oh, she don't see the light that's shining⠀⠀ Deeper than the eyes can find it…⠀⠀ You should know you're beautiful just the way you are…⠀⠀ She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it⠀⠀ Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface• ALESSIA CARA⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #femaleempowerment #innerbeautyfirst #selfaffirmation #believeinme #yourvoicematters #youareworthy #beautytalk #theselfproject #chicagoculturalcenter #innervoice #youarevaluable #youareart

“Empowered women empower women!”⠀ ⠀ #InternationalWomensDay is more than a hashtag… it’s a global movement to stand up and shout from the rooftops that WE ARE MAGIC!! ⠀ ⠀ Because there are no world leaders… or presidents, or Martin Luther Kings, or men who we hold as the strongest and brightest amongst us… without the women who birthed them! ⠀ ⠀ And personally, I am thankful for the women in my life who have empowered me to be the woman that I am today!!! Who’ve pushed, pulled, and encouraged me along the way. Whose support was laced with “YOU GO GIRL” and who gave me the courage to be everything that I deserve to be!! ⠀ ⠀ I’m able to live #TheGoodLifeDaily because of incredible women who have shown me that we no longer have to settle!! And whatever your goals may be, I’m here to tell you…. life is so much better when you tap into your womanly intuition, pursue what makes you truly happy, and live unapologetically!!! Because…. #WhoGonStopYou? ⠀ ⠀ #HappyInternationalWomensDay #YouGoGirl⠀

The Whooping Crane (calls) is on view at The Arts Club Chicago from now through February 24th. There is much great work to see by many talented colleagues. The Whooping Crane (calls) is part of the ongoing project Last Calls; photo based work depicting the most threatened birds of North America. These “Portraits” are abstracted images printed on silk. They are constructed using Spectrograph images that depict the sound waves of actual bird calls. The marks are photographed, layered, and toned with hues found within the color spectrum of each bird species. The surprising colors of eyes, talons, skin, coupled with the delicate markings of delineating sounds are reminiscent of hieroglyphics. This language of sound traces last calls in the wild, and in some cases, are all that is left of certain extinct species. The Sound component plays from a parabolic speaker above consisting of archival field recordings from the 1950's of Whooping Crane calls and scientists describing field and viewing conditions. Re-contextualized and re-compiled, In collaboration with artist Walter Kitundu. Sound recordings courtesy of The Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
