For the first episode of Celluloid City, I had the great pleasure to interview Vashon Jordan, Jr, a photo journalist working in Chicago and covering a wide variety of subjects. We discussed his coverage of protests over the summer in 2020, as well as some of his background in photography.
Vashon released his book, Chicago Protests: A Joyful Revolution, earlier this year. The book is available on Amazon, here: https://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Protests-Vashon-Jordan-Jr/dp/B08L4FL9N6
You can also follow his work on Instagram.
Celluloid City is released twice monthly and will profile historic photographers working in Chicago through out the decades, as well as photo journalists capturing the city today.
