Synopsis: 

The Chicago Board of Education made history in 2013 approving the closure of 50 schools, the largest public school closing to date in the United States.  I shot all 50 schools on a 100’ roll of 16mm film while my DSLR caught vignettes of their communities.  Direct laser animation and bleach were used to distress the 16mm film, which was then optically printed.
