From February 3rd to 7th, Lynn Renee Persin took over our Instagram to show us the work she has been making at Edison Regional Gifted Center in the north side neighborhood of Albany Park. We are proud to present to you those images, as they become apart of our digital archive !

Project Overview

Lynn Renee Persin is currently photographing at Edison Regional Gifted Center in Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood, documenting the school and student life of this new decade. Lynn ask the students that she photographs what does it mean to be living in the present, and how can the choices they make now drive them into a brighter, more colorful future.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

Primarily a portrait photographer Lynn loves spending a day shooting at the beach or simply in the backyard of families all over Chicago and the suburbs. Chasing toddlers on her knees and watching a family welcome their new bundle of joy into their home is her forte. And you know it’s a great day when someone comes down the stairs in their favorite superhero costume. Equally as comfortable shooting professional models and actors, Lynn works with a lot of local talent agents helping their clients to put their best face forward.

In addition to portrait shooting, Lynn shoots events all over the Chicago area from Governor Quinn signing of the same sex union bill to 3000 people fundraisers and elaborate weddings. Her constantly growing client list includes the Anti-Defamation League, Jewish United Fund of Chicago (JUF), Ogilvy & Mather, Girl Scouts of Chicago & GNWI, Elle Magazine, GQ Magazine, Shape Magazine, Kaplan University, University of Illinois Chicago, American Jewish Committee, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, BMW, Kimberly Clark, and was recently hired to follow and document Foreign Diplomats visiting the great city of Chicago through the US Department of State, Office of Protocol.

An active participant in the fine art community as well, Lynn Renee has shown her work in the Artist Project, part of Chicago’s Artropolis weekend, Around the Coyote Arts Festivals and receiving the Curator’s Choice Award in 2006 by guest curator and the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Curatorial Coordinator and Curator of Artists Books, Tricia Van Eck.
