PechaKucha 20x20 night at the House of Blues
A PechaKucha 20x20 was held Monday night in Chicago at the House of Blues. The Chicago Tribune’s award-winning photographers, videographers and editors presented a unique look at the world of photojournalism in a fun, informal night of rapid-fire storytelling. Nearly a dozen photojournalists presented what it’s like, and what it takes, to capture Chicago in images. I enjoyed the event tremendously, it was a very interesting fun filled night at the House of Blues.
