Our City, Our Story
E19: The Daylight Hours
It was an experiment for a pop-up show.
The first step was to find a location. We selected Parthenios, an abandoned diner in downtown Rockford that closed in 2010, and a group of people came to fix it up.
Then the next part was a call out to local photographers to wander through the streets of the city. So, we put out the call. The purpose was to meet people and find out something about them. The process was to take their photo, capture a quote, and display both that night at a pop-up show inside Parthenios.
Initially the ask was to photographery friends, however, it became apparant that it should be more inclussive. So, the call was put out to everyone. Citywide. It was promoted through the "Our City, Our Story" facebook page, the Rockford Register Star had an article, even Steve Shannon announced it on his morning show on 97zok. It grew organically.
This is just a sample of the experience people had that day.
Thank you to the subjects of the photographers, thank you to the people behind the camera, thank you to the people who showed up at the exhibit.
