South Side | Jon Lowenstein

Chicago's South Side neighbourhood is home to one of the largest and oldest African-American communities in the United States. It is also one of the poorest areas of the country. Over the past decade, the largest housing developments in the United States have been demolished, disrupting the housing of approximately 100,000 of the poorest residents.

In this documentary project, Jon Lowenstein explores the struggle that ensues to maintain a semblance of order as these neighbourhoods crumble before our eyes.

South Side - a project consisting of large-format photographs, ephemeral, poetic and personal stories - is part of a shared history in the middle of a given space, a post-industrial fusion of a city in full gentrification.

21-27 march #‎NOORtakeover

 

 

 

In 1979 the United Nations General Assembly established a Week of Solidarity with the Peoples struggling against Racism and Racial Discrimination.

 

In occasion of this celebration, from 21 to 27 March NOOR photographers Nina Berman and Jon Lowenstein will takeover the noorimages instagram feed to showcase their work on racial discrimination in America and the ways in which - from the BlackLivesMatter movement to the protests against Islamophobia - activists and civil rights movements are struggling for rights in an attempt to break the cycle of violence and racism.
