Architecture takes a holiday: Chicago people in photos


(photo by Lee Bey)

I went to to the African-Caribbean International Festival of Life last weekend in Washington Park.

I took my camera along. Musical acts like Angela Winbush and‚  Dancehall star Shaggy were among the performers (although Shaggy didn't show). I was interested in capturing the people, and how giant Washington Park--for a few warm days in the summer--transformed into a place of beauty, pride, food, music, community and culture.

We'll get back to architecture tomorrow.
