Uptown Humanitarian Photographer In the News

If you read UU's Facebook page with any regularity, you may recognize the name of contributor Ivan Yee Gwan Lo.  Chicago Talks did an article about this Uptown resident/ humanitarian photographer, and it turns out that he not only travels the world to document the conditions people are experiencing in war-torn regions, but that he does so under some very challenging health issues that he himself experiences.

Definitely someone to get to know more about.  Read "In the Blood: One Photographer’s Need to Go Around the Globe" and meet your neighbor.

Update:  You can see Ivan's website and stunning samples of his work here, at
