One of the projects that the paper seems to keep coming back to each year is ‘Day in the Life’. The idea is that you send out your photographers all over one of the communities that they cover, make a lot of pictures and create a newspaper entirely of photos showing life in that area. The first one this year was Lake Forest, a city in the north suburbs of Chicago. I spent the day with a family, a local sexton at a cemetery, hung out in a barber shop and wandered into restaurants and shops. Random fantastic fun.
