Photographer M. Tuteur has spent the past decade documenting hundreds of historic structures in various stages of abandonment and destruction throughout Chicago and other parts of Illinois.  Shooting with a sense of urgency, Tuteur feels compelled to preserve the memory of these buildings and places by photographing them in natural light before they're demolished.  Tuteur has also embarked on various photojournalism projects including photos of Chicago housing projects, a long-term series on former governor Rod Blagojevich's trial, as well as one on residents of the 46th ward of Chicago. 

For his installation at Dock 6 Tuteur will present work featuring the hidden beauty found in places like the abandoned parade float warehouse pictured above and the south side church pictured below.
