Paul D’Amato at the Stephen Daiter Gallery

jacket imagePhotographs by Paul D’Amato are currently on exhibit at the Stephen Daiter Gallery. The show includes some of the work that we published in Barrio: Photographs from Chicago’s Pilsen and Little Village, as well as photographs from a more recent project on Lake Street.
In Barrio, D’Amato made the narratives of daily life in Pilsen and Little Village manifest in photographs of children at play, teenagers out in the night, graffiti, families in their homes, gangs in the alleys, weddings, and more. His photos are beautifully composed and startling—visual narratives that are surreal and dreamlike, haunting and mythic.
The Stephen Daiter Gallery is at 311 West Superior Street in Chicago. The showing continues through July 28. Also, visit Paul D’Amato’s website.
