Darci James


Darci James is a freelance photographer and documentarian.

Darci was first inspired to pick up a camera by her mother and grandmother as she watched them avidly document her family’s daily lives. Other inspirations include female photographers Lynsey Addario, Dorothea Lange, and Vivian Maier; as well as street artists Vhils and Kobra. Her work encompasses street as well as social documentary photography. The pieces currently on display at Intergalactic Cafes are inspired by Chicago street art in its many forms.

Darci James lives in Evanston with her husband, daughters, and giant dog Oliver. 

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
-Dorothea Lange
