To get a grip of how violent Chicago is, go no further than this twitter handle @chiraqhomicide. Earlier this month, the city recorded its 250th homicides. No wonder it goes by the war-zone inspired nickname ‘Chiraq’. This documentary by photographer Will Robson-Scott paints a gruesome picture of the harsh reality of Chicago streets. A sobering, artistic and informative look at a city that is turning into an urban nightmare right in front of us.
