Futuro Return – Livingston, Illinois
$40.00 – $495.00
Long Exposure Photograph of a vintage Futuro House, which sits outside an antique mall along Route 66, its grounds adorned with oddities of all shapes and sizes. What was once imagined and created as a portable ski chalet by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, is now a beloved and iconic landmark along the Route. The inside of the Futuro is lit with a stream of red from our Protomachines flash, while light from both a blinding electronic sign and misty full moon scampers across the damp air. While light-painting, we were visited by the owner, and later by a employee of the cafe and her friend, both incredibly curious about what the hell was going on. The owner told us about his plans and schemes for the future of the Futuro, which sounded fun and doable. The two spirited young ladies invited us to the bar next door, beers on them. Never one to turn down an adventure, we finished up and made our way to the newly-opened watering hole, packed with locals. The next couple hours were filled to the brim with maddening stories of the trials and tribulations that accompany small business ownership in a small town. Not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure.
