People of the Concrete

Harvey Pullings II's new photo exhibition at 360 CHICAGO

Gallery access included with every ticket

About the Photo Exhibition

People of the Concrete is Harvey Pullings II’s perspective of a more candid, less polished Chicago. Shot within the neighborhoods of Chatham, Rogers Park, Edgewater, and various parts of the inner city – this exclusive photo exhibition is a celebration of the city’s Black residence, through images of intimacy and vulnerability.

Summer of 1968 by Harvey Pullings II

Focusing on photographs outside of protest and violent struggle, Harvey’s camera is an exploration of humanity against the varying backdrops of the city. It is a portrait of a Chicago that is often ignored, and the people that often see themselves in a mirror with no reflection.

This compilation features work shot over the past four years, with several pieces from the year before Chicago's COVID-19 lockdowns. These are images we all see daily, captured with an intent to show the beauty of a one-of-a-kind city and its unique residents.

People of the Concrete will be on display  at 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck from late May through the end of July. Access to the exhibition is included with every admission ticket. A portion of all print sales from the photo exhibition will benefit My Block, My Hood, My City.

About Harvey Pullings II

A native of the south side of Chicago’s Chatham and Princeton Park communities, Harvey Pullings II (born Feb. 14th, 1986) is an independent filmmaker, photographer, and writer. A graduate of Columbia College Chicago and Moraine Valley Community College, his themes in cinema and imagery offer perspectives of gritty cityscapes, the everyday man, the struggles of identity, and street elements – focusing on people and candid activity.

Pullings grew up in a household of film lovers and religious, blue collar workers. This middle-class upbringing provided him with a humble and warm perspective of inner-city life, with an acknowledgement of both its beauty and its tragedy.
