October 28th-January 15th Chicago Homicide Map

Click the map for a much larger view

Above is the map of the homicide sites in Chicago that I will be photographing over the next month. There were a total of 78 people killed between October 28th and Januart 15th of last year. I will photograph each of these locations and make a visual bar graph to show the reality of the statistic that we gloss through in the news every day. Interestingly, even though the time period I am covering is not a "peak" time for homicides, there are still far too many and far more than in most cities. Stay tuned for more from my photographing adventures.
