DAY 28/Chicago:
During the MODA fashion show I got to run the photobooth - complete with big strobes and all kinds of cute props.  We had fake mustaches and glasses for people to wear, but these fellas here decided to steal a couple pillows from the smartwater booth and pose.  I don’t know, I like funny people and this was pretty creative.  
Also, I think it’s kinda strange that Tiff & I both covered this big fashion show and the photos we ended up posting have nothing to do with models or fashion.  It was a great show though!  I highly recommend it!
PEACE,

DAY 26/Chicago:
This is the same protest group that I’ve been posting a lot about lately, only this time they’re in a warm building asking University “officials” hard-hitting questions about health care, bureaucratic policies, and why, at a meeting specifically designed to be a discussion between the University and students, no university official with any power or authority was at the meeting.
For the whole, controversial story surrounding the Trauma Center protests, including the arrests, trials, and undercover UCPD detectives, go to the Chicago Maroon.It’s purdy interesting, unbelievable stuff.

DAY 24/Chicago:
I’ve been the protest beat photographer for the paper this past week or so.  I generally really enjoy shooting protests, but this one was far from campus and during a blizzard.  Also, they didn’t allow any form of technology inside the building, so unfortunately I don’t have any photos from the trials we watched.  They were a bit bizarre and sad, though.  Half the people being tried couldn’t speak English and didn’t know what a “trial by jury” meant.-Syd  View Larger

DAY 22/Chicago:
This is Patrick Dexter, a third-year at the University of Chicago.  He’s an active member of the student group fighting for a level 1 trauma center on the south side of Chicago and can give one hell of a speech.  As he asked during his speech at the University’s grand opening for their new medical center, “This is the new “Center for Care and Discovery” building, but I ask, it’s the center for whom and the discovery of what?”
