The Lazarus Project Photography Show Opening in Chicago – May 22

Aleksandar Hemon‘s new book The Lazarus Project is peppered with images, both new and old. The archival photographs were pulled from the Chicago Historical Society and the originals were taken by Hemon’s childhood friend, Velibor Bozovic, while he traveled through Eastern Europe doing research for the book. The Lazarus Project is historical fiction, telling the tale of Lazarus Averbuch, an immigrant who was gunned down by the Chicago chief of police in 1908. The photographs that accompany the book are being exhibited at the Madron Gallery in Chicago. The opening is Wednesday, May 22nd from 6 – 8pm.
