This article is part of a series of article exchange partnerships between Sixty Inches From Center and other online blogs and journals that have missions similar to ours–to document and support the visual arts in Chicago. The goal of these partnerships is to build bridges within our writing community, help promote one another to new audiences and give more exposure to the art that keeps our Chicago experience compelling.

Lights in the City: Chicago Photographs by Satoki Nagata is currently on display at the Harold Washington Library Center. The exhibit highlights two of the Japanese photographer’s most recent projects; street photography shot with unique flash and long exposure techniques and a documentary  Cabrini-Green’s Frances Cabrini Rowhouses based on Nagata’s observations during his three years living in the neighborhood. The juxtaposition of these two projects creates an interesting portrait of the city and its residents, both beautiful and struggling
