ESL II Student Photography Exhibit at Gallery 200

Experience the photography of West Chicago Community High School ESL II students at an exhibition at Gallery 200, 103 W. Washington St., West Chicago. The exhibit is open during the months of May and June on Fridays from 2 - 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The exhibit is free.
 
ESL teacher Mark Poulterer explains the project: "Teenagers are divided. It’s the nature of adolescence. Divided between obligation and obliviousness, adventure and anxiety, nostalgia and the not quite yet. 
 
Immigrants are divided too. It’s the nature of leaving one’s home. Divided between ritual and romantic, comfort and craving, nostalgia and the not quite yet. 
 
That’s what this photography exhibit is all about; photographs of lives in between, and the photographers who live in those places."
