The Greater Good

Chicago Photography Classes

Chicago, IL

In the last few months, life as we know it has completely changed. Certainty and normal routines were replaced by insecurity, challenges and sometimes fear. We’ve been forced to reexamine our priorities and change our habits in the hope of preventing the spreading of this worldwide disease.

In response to this pandemic, our Country is coming together, state by state, city by city, neighborhood by neighborhood. Although challenging, this time is becoming our chance to reveal the good around us, to show the strength we did not know we had, to cherish friends, and to thank the people who are working every day to keep us safe. We are putting our families, loved ones and their health first, leaving our empty workplaces, outdoor spaces and even our inner comfort zone behind.
