David Schalliol, Chicago

David Schalliol is a photographer and a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago. He spends much of his time on the South Side of Chicago, where he documents the dynamism of some of Chicago’s most radically changing neighborhoods. While not strictly architectural photographs, these images are often trained on the relationship buildings (and the people who use them) have with their surroundings and the processes of community change.


The 2nd Annual Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards is an international photography competition for up-and-coming image makers who are ready to kickstart their careers. Five talented photographers will be provided with the resources they need to get their career off to a strong start. Photographers of all disciplines are welcome to submit up to 5 images in any genre. We can’t wait to see your best work! Enter here.

    I have been following Davids’ work for quite a while now and am glad to see that other people notice his fine view of the neighborhoods in Chicago.
