The People in Your Neighborhood
By Dont Fret, 2020
Created by one of Chicago’s most visible street artists – Dont Fret, The People in Your Neighborhood offer a microcosmic reflection of scrappy and hard-working Chicagoans found throughout the city, each portrayed in 55 images with Fret’s inimitable documentarian flair.
“There are certain character traits that I think define a true Chicagoan. Tough, full-browed with a sense of ingenuity and midwestern humbleness, but always toiling, working, moving forward with an almost absurd laugh and grin about this crazy, wonderful city,” said Dont Fret. “These are the people in your neighborhood.”
