Creative Thought Leadership
The pandemic and brutal killing of George Floyd were two devastating events we all experienced in our own unique ways in 2020. Chris Slaughter used this time of uncertainty and pain to spend quality time with his son, Zachary. After purchasing a new camera with graduation money, Zachary and his dad took to the streets of Chicago to photograph street art on boarded-up buildings. These photos captured both pain and beauty and were transformed into an incredible book titled, Boarded Up Chicago: Storefront Images Days After the George Floyd Riots. A message of love and unity, all seen through the lens of a father and his son.
