Our most recent art show, Without a Trace, presents a selection of works by Zbigniew Bzdak, a photojournalist with the Chicago Tribune. The exhibition aims to provide a space for healing and reflection for everyone who has been impacted by the consequences of a worldwide health crisis.
We sat down with Zbigniew to discuss the incredible imagery of this exhibit and explore the larger themes and feelings that it evokes. Click here to watch the interview and explore the photography. You can also use this guided self-reflection to check on your feelings, past and present, and learn how photography can help you process them.
