New show at the Chicago Photography Collective Pop-up Art Loop Gallery entitled “On the Road Again” showcasing the photography of Rebeka Raleigh and yours truly, Ken Ilio – opening on May 6, 2010.
I am in good company!
Rebekah holds a BA in Art History from Wesleyan University (Middletown, Conn.) and has finished the coursework for her MA in photojournalism from the University of Missouri (Columbia, Mo.). From 2005 to 2008, she worked at various newspapers throughout the Midwest. In Spring 2008, Raleigh left newspapers to work as a staff photographer for a travel company where she created content for 400 page catalog and taught photography workshops. After two years of traveling, Raleigh returned to her native Chicago to work as a picture editor at the Kellogg School of Management in Evanston. She is currently working on her master’s thesis, tentatively titled “The Human Gender Project,” an essay addressing the spectrum of gender presentation.
She has earned awards from several professional organizations including the Associated Press Editor’s Association, Inland Press Association, Illinois Press Association, and the Illinois Press Photographer’s Association.
For this exhibit, she will present photographs from her travels in Burma.

My part of the exhibit will be a little bit eclectic – photos from the old country, the Philippines, and a few from my travels around Australia and New Zealand, North America and Europe.
Other members of the Chicago Photography Collective will also show their works following the theme – on the road again!
Please join us … at 29 E. Madison in the loop.
This exhibit is a part of the Pop-Up Art (TM) Loop initiative of the Chicago Loop Alliance.
