Lynn Renee Persin Instagram Takeover – February 2020

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.

Having studied photography at the University of Michigan, Lynn Renee Persin has been a part of the Chicago photographic community for over 20 years.  Her work has been exhibited at the now defunct Around the Coyote festivals in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood where she picked up a curator’s choice award from Tricia Van Eck, then the associate curator for the Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition she was a chosen artist for The Artist Project, an exhibition that accompanied Chicago’s Art Expo in the Merchandise Mart. 

Currently Lynn supports her family in her chosen career of photography, partnering with local non-profits to provide event and marketing photography.  Her work is often featured on billboards and bus stops throughout the city and surrounding suburbs, and she spends her evenings photographing fundraisers, her daytimes photographing school programs, and in the summer you can find her up at summer camp hanging out of a canoe with two camera bodies strapped to her chest. And in her free time you can often find her setting up a picnic in the park with her husband, 8 year old son, and her dog named, “Sox.”
