Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation will be the cover story in this coming Sunday’s Chicago Tribune Magazine. Shortly after opening Flint Creek Wildlife’s second location at Northerly Island on April 1, I was contacted by Scott Strazzante, photographer for the Chicago Tribune. Scott expressed interest in taking some pictures of us at Northerly Island.
Before I knew it, Scott’s project had grown into a possible Sunday magazine piece. Scott spent many hours with us a Flint Creek documenting our work.
I was almost speechless when I saw Scott’s first photographs taken at Flint Creek Wildlife. Scott’s amazing photographs truly capture the essence of our work. There is no question in my mind why Scott is a nationally acclaimed photo-journalist.
Scott was soon followed by Don Terry, a Tribune reporter, who wrote the story that accompany Scott’s photos. Don was another true professional and we enjoyed his time with us at Flint Creek.
I hope that you enjoy the photos and story.
My personal thanks to Scott for his time, professionalism, depth of talent and for having the vision to want to document Flint Creek Wildlife, to Don Terry for his professionalism, patience and sense of humor (I can’t wait to see the story), and to the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Park District for supporting this project.
