The story of Chicago is a tale of two cities. It
is both the booming metropolis with world-class institutions and strong
neighborhoods, but also is struggling with segregation and racial inequity.
Tonika Johnson’s project, Folded Map, leverages the urban structure of Chicago
to find the mirror points of the city and visually compares them through
photographs as well as having residents from those communities meet each other
