Power-plant emissions bill dead, but not for long

Power-plant emissions bill dead, but not for long A proposal for Chicago to regulate exhaust from coal-fired power plants may be dying. But the bill’s sponsor, Ald.

I Am Chicago - Rogers Park/Edgewater edition.

I Am Chicago - Rogers Park/Edgewater edition. We set up a portable, natural-light studio on Chicago’s neighborhood corners. We spend a day there documenting the characters of the city by inviting all who pass by to step into our studio. We take full-body portraits of them to record the exact way they have presented themselves to the streets on that given day, brown paper bags and all. Some strut, some smile, some grill, some glare, some frown... To encourage participation we offer everybody a professional 8x11.5 inch print of their studio portrait, made on the spot. Our goal is to set up our studio on 30 of Chicago’s corners. The purpose of ‘I am Chicago’ is to collect material for an exhibit, a book of photographs, and a film. Go to "I Am Chicago" Website>>

Winthrop) started twenty minutes late, after people had ample opportunity for friendly casual conversation in the lobby and slowly made their way into the meeting.
