LATITUDE,Chicago’s premier community print lab,celebrates community practices with Value Prints,a group photography show and print sale featuring the work of nine Chicago-based artists, on-view March 31 through April 28.Dorian by Ash Dye is a recent portrait from an on-going series titled It Builds. The series started in 2014 and will continue until I draw my last breath. More than just portraits, this is a body of work that is the result of a need to create, to connect on a personal level. Driven from loneliness and curiosity, each subject strikes a unique cord in my heart. They are humans who don't spend their time in front of a lens, humans who make up the world around me. Strangers, lovers and friends alike, what you see before you is the result of a vulnerable exchange that leaves us both closer. What started as a way to expand a studio practice has grown into an ode to a community that has so graciously welcomed me, an emotional outpour.
