Scott Fortino : Interior Spaces

CPS Lives Photographer Scott Fortino continues his fascination with interior spaces in this new set of work, created at public schools around the city. Fortino ends his CPS Lives residency with cool, breathtaking photos from the insides of schools such as Sullivan and Clemente, to reminisce on a time when schools were only quiet at the end of the day.

Scott Fortino

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

Scott Fortino developed his approach to photography out of experiences directly related to his position as a Chicago police officer. This work led to the publication of his monograph, Institutional, which depicted seemingly impersonal architectural spaces while revealing the embedded evidence of personal use. He received his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a BA from Columbia College Chicago. He has had solo exhibitions in Chicago at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. His work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, Worcester Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and numerous public and private collections. He lives and works in Chicago.
