It's forty years later, and three girls who posed for Rehak in the mid-1970s will be at the reception between 6pm and 8pm at 935 West Wilson to talk to guests about growing up in Uptown four decades ago.
- Diana Gomez, immortalized as Pensive Guatemalan Girl, will be in attendance along with several of her family members. Rehak says on his website, "I met this girl, now a fully grown woman, almost 40 years after taking this picture. She turned out to be as thoughtful as an adult as she appeared to be as a child. However, one thing did surprise me. She barely spoke when I photographed her; now she’s tri-lingual!"
- Three friends, two of them sisters, appear in Black Girlfriends With Popsicles. Two of the three ladies will be at the reception, and the third has a great reason for not attending -- she'll be at her college graduation instead. Of this photo, Rehak says, "I found these girls near the corner of Sheridan and Wilson on 9/7/75. This is one of my favorite shots from the entire Uptown portfolio. These young women seem so happy. Friends and Popsicles! What more could kids want on a hot summer day? .... The woman on the far right emailed me to say that the two on the left are sisters and still friends of hers to this day. She is married to a man in the recording industry. All three women are doing well with families and jobs. They live in the suburbs now."
