About this title

Synopsis:

Each vivid photo captures a very real element of life on one urban street. An extensive selection from this exhibit and the accompanying essays and commentary by area residents and experts on photography, public art, community, urban studies, and other pertinent disciplines shed light on the dizzying mixture of socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural realities that embody the twelve neighborhoods connected by Lake Street, a microcosm of America's changing social landscape.

"Most of us have been taught very well how to imagine crime, poverty and racial tension as the whole of the inner-city experience. Huie knows this; he shrewdly embraces such urban realities, hoping to take us beyond our well-taught imaginations and show us one grand sphere of humanity."-Colors magazine

"Must be a Nike thing."-a teenager speculating on the Lake Street, U.S.A. images in a grocery store window
