Finding Sanctuary
Chicago Tribune Photo Exhibit
Early September through October 15, 2003

Photographs -- incredibly rich with lessons on personal values and love of family and life -- have found their way from the pages of the Chicago Tribune into the new galleries of  Skokie Public Library (East Lobby, Mary Radmacher Foyer, and second floor landing).

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Chicago Tribune photographers Bill Hogan and Heather Stone, along with several reporters, traveled around the world -- from Iceland to India, and from Cuba to New York, Turkey, Japan, Northern Ireland, Senegal, and Uzbekistan – to find out how people in those very diverse locations create places of sanctuary within their homes. The resulting photographs, published in a ten-part Tribune series that ran in the Home & Garden section during 2001 and 2002, reveal not only a range of places and cultures, but also the common threads that connect us all.

More than fifty of these photographs have been chosen for the exhibit, which explores the importance of family, daily life, sense of place, and faith across various cultures. The exhibit also features portraits of the families profiled in each installment of the series.
