About Romain
My name is Romain, I am a graphic designer from Paris. I currently live in Chicago, USA. I am interested in things like people’s behaviour and what conditions it. Especially how social structures manage to influence people’s ideas and understandings of the world around them to the point that we believe our behaviour is natural and forget that it is cultural and time based.

A nice little spot for some coffee and custom made bagel sandwiches where neighbourhood people hang out with their laptops. Awesome beet juice not to be missed!

The 95th floor of the Hancock tower is a noisy, faux-classy tourist trap bar/restaurant, but the elevator ride (94 floors at 1800ft/min) and the view make it worth spending money on an expensive cocktail at the bar.

The Green Mill is Chicago's oldest Jazz club, open since 1907. Today it is an authentic link to past visitors like Al Capone and his henchman “Machine Gun” Jack McGurn who was the club’s former manager.

Chicago is a gigantic open-air museum of hand painted signs and murals where you can still find gold leaf lettering in shop windows and ghost signs litter the city's brick walls. This handmade sign is on the wall of a Mexican garage near my apartment.

I was born and raised in a small suburban town outside of Chicago. I moved to the city, where I now reside, while attending Columbia College Chicago to work on my B.A. in Photography which I received in 2012. My personal work as of late has focused on matters of family and cultural connection.

An artist working primarily in photography, Laura Letinsky’s ideas and work are formed through a perspective that avails, perhaps insists upon, a particular kind of attention to the act of looking and of picturing. While materially different, in her photographic work, as with materials including porcelain and textiles, she wrangles with the personal and the intimate as it is visually, experientially, and quantitatively defined- and thus, confined-- by the social and the public. Along with making and thinking about art, teaching, designing (clothes, household items), growing (mostly vegetables), endorphins (running), and being a mom, she wonders what to eat for dinner tonight. A Professor at the University of Chicago since 1994, she’s received numerous awards including, recently, the Canada Council International Residency, Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin. She's numerous publications including six monographs, her most recent book is Time's Assignation, Radius Books, 2017.

Marta Sasinowska is a designer and photographer, curator and event coordinator based in Chicago. She’s also the founder of Practice Studies, where she documents artists and makers and their creative processes as she travels the world. Instead of focusing on the final product, she focuses on highlighting the “ways to get there,” showing how much work goes into each handmade piece. She’s driven by the idea of connecting, sharing and building community bound by creative passions.
