How do you define a city like Chicago? For Darryl Holliday (BA ’12) and Erik Rodriguez (’11), the answer lies in the stories of people you pass every day, from the surprising to the mundane.

Kedzie Avenue examines its namesake street from top to bottom, exploring histories, characters and communities that Holliday calls “microcosms of the city itself.”

“[There’s] such a diverse range of people and places and stories on that route,” he says. “It’s been a really interesting adventure, learning about the city through tracking down this one street.”
