The Photo-Four Gallery
An exhibition of photographs by Jordan Scott
Now through through November 20th
Closing Reception: November 20th at 12:30 pm.
Jordan Scott grew up in Skokie, Illinois. He received a Chicago Photography Academy Certificate in 2015 and a BA from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Growing up a fan of the vintage, the unusual and the seedy, nearby a business district extending roughly a mile in all directions from the corners of Peterson and Lincoln Avenues, the offbeat and out of place style of architecture on Peterson and the unfashionable motels on Lincoln hold a special place. On close consideration, these buildings are beautifully out of time and place. These now squalid and crime ridden rest stops (several offering hourly rate options) were once considered family friendly and modern. It’s just a matter of time before the city or local community groups demand their demolition, or the current owners finally sell for redevelopment. Scott decided to document some of these idiosyncratic structures before the inevitable occurs.
