JBA 0051-1Living in Oak Brook comes with a valuable privilege. You have the opportunity to enjoy the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County natural environment including the Mayslake Peobody Estate.  When first time I discovered this area I was walking my dog. The quiet place and undulating landscape behind the building, the tiny lake with colorful reflections of the surrounding trees and fauna, the huge willow trees, and the shady path around Mayslake presented many opportunities for a nature loving Oak Brook photographer in every season. Ten years ago I hardly ever saw people around the estate. Slowly I witnessed how the estate came alive. From a gorges but abandoned building it turned into a cultural center with offering concerts, exhibitions and many other organized programs. I was invited for a solo exhibitions in 2008  and 2014.  I have found very good friends there and a community to belong to.
