Chicago her & history.

In 1896, Chicago based photographer Beatrice Tonnesen first pioneered the use of photographs of live models in print advertising.

One hundred years later in 1996, Chicago based photographer Baramesi Ra pioneered the idea of collaborating with live models to create art that references print advertising.  

Similar to Beatrice's approach of creating ads using everyday people that she met in her day, Baramesi  creates striking art by collaborating with the most stylish and spirited people during this turn of century.

This collection of images will be time capsuled and revisited on Chicago's 200th birthday in 2037 as "The Chicago Wall".   Representing over 10,000 people by name, in what is nicknamed the most American of big cities, the Chicago Wall  preserves a visual record of turn of the century tastemakers not just for now or the next 100 years, but forever.
