David Schalliol: The Area

December 2, 2014 at 6PM

Lecture by photographer David Schalliol that took place at the International Museum of Surgical Science. The lecture was organized in collaboration with the Society of Architectural Historians.


The Area

In his talk, David Schalliol discussed the documentary film he is currently developing that focused on a portion of Englewood where 400 families were being displaced by the expansion of the Norfolk Southern South Side 47th Street Terminal. The documentary investigated the tangible tensions between residents and the pressures of contemporary transportation policy by following neighbors living on borrowed time, maintaining friendships and traditions while struggling with new problems in their vanishing community.
