Portraits by Marina Labarthe del Solar
Marina Labarthe del Solar is a visual anthropologist living in Chicago.
I compiled this series of portraits to reflect only a small, but vibrant part of Chicago's art scene. As a photographer (I still have trouble saying that), I place more value in the relationships cultivated through the process of collaboration than I do on the art itself. These photos were taken between June and December 2017, a very transitional moment in my life. I will always look back on these portraits and remember that creating them kept me alive.
