Garfield Porch Portraits: Neighborhood Pride During a Pandemic
Despite the current coronavirus pandemic, the Garfield Park community has found a way to stay connected and demonstrate civic pride in our historic neighborhood. View a collection of neighbor porch portraits, taken from a safe distance, by local Garfield Park neighbor and photographer Kelley Jordan Schuyler. This project grew during the pandemic as a way for Garfield neighbors to showcase their front porch and neighborhood pride, while connected during a time of social isolation. Garfield Park has always been a people-focused community – view the smiling faces that make up this neighborhood in this online show.
About the Artist
I've been photographing life and love for more than 10 years and I firmly believe that these
are the "good ole days" (even if we are living in a pandemic). I love capturing families in
their element. I want you to remember the cuddles you have with your toddler, the little
kisses you share with your partner, and the walks you take each day with your dog.
It may feel “mundane” but these are the bits of time that make up our lives.
It was a delight to meet and capture the happy faces of Garfield Park during such
tumultuous time. You can order a print on my website (linked below) by selecting your
photo and then clicking on the shopping cart icon on the top of the page. Also, I'm still
booking fall family sessions, with a "Porch Portrait" option!
