Best vegetarian places in Chicago

Chicago has such a long history as a meatpacking town that one of the city’s nicknames was once “hog butcher to the world.” The legacy of that era has evidently caused Chicago to remain a meat and potatoes kind of town, where it’s almost always easier to get a gyro, Polish sausage, or Italian beef than it is to get a good salad. But the city is also a world-class metropolis so of course there are tons of great vegetarian and vegan restaurants all over. For the non-meat eaters out there, or if...

Photography and sex in Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore

The Baltimore photographer Amos Badertscher has been cataloguing queer lives in his city since the 1960s: male sex workers and their girlfriends, the 1990s Baltimore and Washington club culture, transgender people, crack and heroin addiction, and the impact of AIDS. His is the largest extant photographic record of the short lives of hustlers (male sex workers) that I know of.

His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the "quantity"...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 1

  My kids are 6 and 11. Right in that sweet spot where all the older people you meet say, “Cherish this time. It goes by so quickly.” Seriously. I’ve heard that a lot. My wife and I are trying to appreciate it, but as my son told me the other day, (with respect to the natural beauty that surrounds him in Taos,) it’s hard not to take it for granted. One thing I’ve discovered, one trick to make it last, is to try to make more memories. To do it on purpose. As a photographer, I’ll be honest, I don’...

Kenneth Josephson

I really like this book, but I had to learn how to enjoy it. You know that third helping of dessert when the first helping was ecstatically delicious, or rides at Six Flags, or that friend of yours who's full of new jokes, amazing facts, facile wordplay, excessive bonhomie, and too much energy by half, but who wears you out after three or four hours? You can get too much of a good thing, is my point. What I've learned to do with this book is to sit down, crack it open randomly, and look long, h...

AK Monthly Recap: November 2018

This month was about…Kenyamerica? It’s hard to define this month as a whole — I spent the first 10 days in Kenya, enjoying the brilliant sunshine, and the final 20 days living a low-key life in the chilly, damp northeast US. That’s how much of my life has been lately. I live a normal life in New York most of the time, then I go on a trip and it’s like I’ve jumped into someone else’s life. It’s not quite as extreme as in 2012, when my broke ass spent a night in the cheapest hostel in London I co...

Eating Only Fruit Might Be Trendy, But It's A Really Bad Idea

Proponents of the diet claim that it'll help with digestion, keep you hydrated, improve cognition, simplify meal-prepping, give you more energy, and of course, "detoxify " you body.Fru...
