Stephanie Burke here, Managing Editor of this fair magazine, head honcho of Art Talk Chicago, Bad at Sports contributor, and self-same author of The Gallery Crawl and So Much More. Again, I bring you the beauty of the CAM Weekend Picks.
In honor of the coming of spring, the migration out-of-doors of winter weary Chicagoans, and thus the obligatory over use of digital cameras to snap and post far to many god-damn pictures on Facebook, I’ve decided to highlight photography. Fours shows to lend you some inspiration (and hopefully some constraint)…
