DESCRIPTION

Langolier Photo Collective 

a photographic essay on the transformation of the area


The Langolier Photo Collective: is a Chicago-based group of photographers which engages in projects with a particular social or contemporary documentary view of historical significance. Each artist has a unique visual style of storytelling, enhanced by deep discussions of the work and resulting in a collective consciousness that radiates a passion for time, place/things, persona/beings or other lifeforms.

This photographic essay, BENSENVILLE, IL.: O'HARE AIRPORT EXPANSION PROJECT, spans a two year period, 2009-2011, documenting the area of Bensenville, Illinois as it transitions from homes to the O'Hare Airport. The photographers were drawn to this area of desolation, destruction, abandonment and ultimately reinvention and witnessed the remaining vestiges of the place that is no longer anyone's home. Then, after years of legal dispute and personal losses, the buildings were razed. Soon the ghosts still anchored there will inhabit the runways of O'Hare.
