HERE HERE - a celebration of here, here.
Pullman resident since 2012
CJ Martello has been a Pullman homeowner since September of 2012. As a writer, poet, photographer and stained-glass artist his creative mind is never at rest. This multi-photo piece was inspired by a homeless man CJ noticed at a bus stop, day after day. Taking advantage of the opportunity to take a photo as the CTA bus he was on waited for the red light to change, CJ was able to capture these photos on his daily commute. The photos are reminders that, just as we go through our same daily routines, others have a less fortunate same daily routine.
